Columbia Records is in the news on all musical fronts: the response to Jimmy Dean’s latest single, “P.T. 109” is the reason for the artist’s broad smile above, 
inimy’s “Big Bad John” smash of last year has already topped the 2,000,000 mark. On top right are Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorine who have just signed a 
jng term pact with Columbia and will be featured on singles and LP’s both separately and as a team. Steve’s first single, just released, is “The Lady Wants To 
wist.” In the classical field Columbia has just signed one of the world’s greatest pianists, Vladimir Horowitz, (lower left) who begins recording for the label’s 
lasterworks department April 5. On lower right is Goddard Lieberson, president of Columbia Records, busy at work in the label’s N.Y. studios where he is person- 
lly supervising the original B’way cast recording of “I Can Get It For You Wholesale” and “All American,” two musicals which have just bowed on B’way.

NARM'S 
4th ANNUAL 
CONVENTION 


The record industry's 1962 con- 
vention season officially bows in 
next week when tlie members and 
associate members of NARM (Na- 
tional Association of Record Mer- 
chandisers) meet at the Eden Roc 
Hotel in Miami Beach to sound off 
on the many problems affecting the 
various facets of the record indus- 
try. 

Although this is only the fourth 
convention the association has held 
since its inception, the strides the 
infant organization has made in 
such a short span have been truly 
amazing. 

It wasn’t more than two years 
ago that animosity on the part of 
other retail and wholesale outlets 
toward the rack jobber was venom- 
ous. Today, everyone is well aware 
of the major importance of the 
rack jobber in the record industry. 
And although there are many who 
still don’t care for the keen com- 
petition the jobbers offer other out- 
lets, just about everyone has re- 
signed himself to selling his own 
business up rather than selling 
down the rack jobber. Greatly re- 
sponsible for the general live-and- 
let-live attitude that exists in this 
area is the clean, business-like man- 


ner in which NARM has justified 
the necessary development of the 
jobbing business. 

The association’s three previous 
conventions have also played a 
major role in the industry’s in- 
creased respect for the rack job- 
ber’s potential and the rack jobber 
himself. Without exception, com- 
ments from manufacturers about 
each of the first three NARM meets 
were at least favorable. Almost 
everyone describes the animal af- 
fairs as “working'’ conventions 
which result in definite benefits for 
all who attend. It has become a con- 
vention at which considerable busi- 
ness is transacted— always an excel- 
lent yard-stick of a good conven- 
tion. 

Another solid convention has 
been scheduled for next week. 
Prominent representatives from 
the manufacturing level will be 
present to air their views individu- 
ally and as members of industry 
panels. Many enlightening facts 
should emanate from this year’s 
meet and interest in this year’s con- 
vention (based on the massive at- 
tendance expected) is at an all time 
high.

ing to the label.

Carlton Cuts Campus Groups 
For New "Collegiate" Line 

NEW YORK — Carlton Records is di- 
recting its attention toward the all- 
important college campus market with 
a “Collegiate Sound” series that fea- 
tures “live” folk concert LP’s of actual 
college groups. 

Nine Ivy League colleges (e.g. 
Harvard, Yale, Vassar) have already 
granted recording rights through local 
producers to Carlton for the release of 
two such LP’s “The Collegiate Sound” 
and “More Collegiate Sound.” 

The albums, to be issued this week, 
feature Harvard’s Dunster Dunces, 
Yale’s Spizzwinks, Vassar’s G-String- 
ers and six others. 

Carlton’s sales personnel, under the 
direction of Fred J. Blender and Gail 
G. Hutchinson, have been recruited to 
cover college outlets, including campus 
stores, educational music jobbers and 
book-record publishers. Distributor 
sales to the college trade, under spe- 
cial merchandising plans, will be su- 
pervised by Blend, who starts an out- 
of-town field trip this week. 

For its “line merchandising,” the 
label has put together an additional 
five albums, all under the heading of 
“New Collegiate Sound.” They are: 
“The Pipes of Trinity College,” “The 
New Sound Of College Jazz” and 
others. 

Carlton is negotiating with college 
promoters and educators for represen- 
tative midwest and west coast campus 


favorites.

NEW YORK — An educational album 
designed to answer questions posed to 
parents by inquiring children concern- 
ing sex and birth has been released

enstein, a Philadelphia school teacher

tions and sales incentives from the 7 
Decca, Coral and Brunswick labels

the new albums. In addition, litho 
books are available listing both the ^ 
new and catalog product involved in 
the plan. 

The new Decca albums, all instru-

Atlantic & Atco LP's 
Contain Singles On The Move 

NEW YORK — Three albums from the ^

mon first for the firms. 

The LP’s, “Bobby Darin Sings Ray 
Charles,” Mr. Acker Bilk’s “Stranger 
On The Shore” and The Drifters’ 
“Save The Last Dance For Me,” mark 
the initial time that the labels have 
albums on release which include orig-

their sales peaks. 

The Atco Darin album contains 
“What’d I Say,” Number 45 on this 
week’s Top 100; from The Drifters 
Atlantic LP the Number 18 spot con- 
tains “When My Little Girl Is Smil- 
ing” and the Mr. Acker Bilk LP, on 
Atco, is represented with “Stranger ^ 
On The Shore,” which holds the num- 
ber 23 position. 

Both labels have taken advantage of 
this situation by attaching stickers to 
the LP’s that note the singles suc- 
cesses contained in each album. 


Paul Ford, none of whom appeared in 
the Broadway version. 

Mike Maitland, WB label prexy, 
said: “. . . we plan on launching the 
most extensive promotion, publicity, 
advertising and merchandising cam- 
paign any motion picture soundtrack 
album has ever received.” 

The LP will be released to coincide 
with the release of the pic later this 
year.

tol Records’ original-cast LP of “No 
Strings,” the Richard Rodgers’ mu- 
sical, last week passed the 100,000

30,000 dealer orders were reported in 
the New York area, where the LP was 
first made available. Capitol Records 
Distributing Corp. last week com- 
pleted national distribution.

MGM Releases Initial Classics 
From Deutsche Grammophon 


See Top Turnout 

NEW YORK — An all-time high at- 
, tendance is expected at next week’s 

• fourth annual convention of the Na- 
tional Association of Record Merchan- 
disers (NARM) in Miami Beach. 

Complementing the rack-jobber 
member turnout will be a strong ap- 
pearance of label personnel, high- 
lighted by addresses by Glenn E. 

* Wallichs, president of Capitol Rec- 
ords, the keynote speaker, and George 
R. Marek, executive veep and gen- 
eral manager of RCA Victor Rec- 
ords. 

Other speakers will include Vic- 
tor’s rack expert Irwin Tarr, who will 
address the convention on its theme, 
originated by Tarr, “The Changing 
Role of the Record Merchandiser,’’ 
and Cy Leslie of Pickwick Interna- 
tional, who will talk on the education 
and children’s disk markets. 

A feature of the convention is the 
Visitation program in which labels in 
attendance can meet with rack-jobbers 
during the four afternoons of the con- 
vention. 

The results of the 1961 NARM 
statistical study will be revealed at 
the Monday (9) business sessions, 
prior to the panel discussions, in a 
special report to the NARM member- 
ship by Jules Malamud, executive 
secretary. Malamud, through the co- 
operation of the regular members 
(rack- jobbers), has compiled the first 
data assembled on rack-jobbing. 


NEW YORK — ASCAP’s proposal to 
TV outlets offering a cut in exposure 
rates if the stations end their stock 
ties in BMI has been turned down by 
the All Television Station Music Li- 
cense Committee, which represents 
some 369 stations in negotiations with 
ASCAP. 

The committee’s rejection of the 
deal, disclosed last week, was made at 
a New York meet on Thursday, March 
22 . 

According to Hamilton Shea (WS- 
VA-TV-Harrisonburg, Va.), chairman 
of the committee, the decision was 
based on three reasons: 

1. There could be no complete stock 
divestiture because much of the stock 
was owned by radio broadcasters and 
others not connected with the All In- 
dustry Committee; 

2. The Committee felt it was en- 
titled to more than offered (about 17% 
over a 10 year period), particularly in 
the area of obtaining clearance for 
licensing at the source which has been 
one of their major aims; 

3. The committee felt that “in all 
fairness to BMI,” if any change was 
to be brought in the BMI set-up, it 
should be completely divorced from 
any connection with the All-Industry 
Committee and should be worked out 
solely on an independent basis and 
that BMI should have “its own day in 
court with its own defense.” 

Shea denied published reports that 
the committee had lost a number of 
members since the New York meet- 
ing. On the contrary, Shea said that 
rather than losing members, the com- 
mittee had gained a net of three addi- 
tional paid-up station members since 
March 5. 

He also stated that the committee 
had no intention of changing its or- 
ganizational status and the All In- 


At NARM Meet 

In a Workshop session, an over-all 
view of rack-jobbing as an aspect of 
modern marketing method, will be 
presented by Dr. Alton F. Doody, As- 
sistant Professor of Marketing at Ohio 
State University, and special consult- 
ant and member of the board of di- 
rectors of Edge, Ltd. of Washington, 
D.C. Dr. Doody will focus his atten- 
tion on the opportunities which lie 
ahead for the rack-jobber. 

After a business daytime schedule, 
the evenings will be devoted to relax- 
ing and getting ready for the next 
day’s busy agenda. In addition to the 
Presidential Welcoming Party, which 
initiates the convention Sunday eve- 
ning, which NARM will host, cocktail 
parties are being hosted by the ABC- 
Paramount, Liberty, Reprise and Syn- 
thetic Plastics labels. 

Dinner parties will be hosted by 
Victor, Capitol, Columbia. The NARM 
Awards Banquet and Formal Dinner- 
Dance climaxes the convention. 

On Sunday evening, after the open- 
ing cocktail party, Roulette is host- 
ing a twist party at the Miami Pep- 
permint Lounge. 

In addition to the functions being 
attended by NARM’s regular and as- 
sociate members, special meetings for 
the regular members will be held 
Sunday afternoon and Thursday morn- 
ing. 


dustry team would continue to op- 
erate as it has to date. 

Shea will speak before the National 
Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 
convention in Chicago this week (3) 
at a general session. The ASCAP — 
BMI controversy is expected to be a 
prime topic of discussion at the meet. 


Capitol Gets Cast LP 
To Sondheim's "Forum" 

NEW YORK— Capitol Records’ fifth 
original-cast acquisition for the 1961- 
62 Broadway season is “A Funny 
Thing Happened On The Way To The 
Forum.” 

The Harold Prince-produced show, 
which has its Broadway opening on 
May 3, has a score, both words and 
music, by Stephen Sondheim, who 
wrote the lyrics for “West Side Story” 
and “Gypsy.” 

Directed by George Abbott, the 
musical stars Zero Mostel and fea- 
tures Raymond Walburn, John Car- 
radine, Jack Gilford, David Burns, 
Ruth Kobart, Karen Black and Pat 
Fox. Orchestrations are by Irwin Kos- 
tal and Sid Ramin. Book was written 
by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. 
Score’s publisher is Chappel. 

Only one of Capitol’s four previous 
cast acquisitions for 1961-62 is now 
represented on Broadway, the recently 
opened Richard Rodgers’ musical, “No 
Strings.” The others, which closed 
after short runs, were Richard Adler’s 
“Kwamina,” Noel Coward’s “Sail 
Away” and Arthur Schwartz’s & How- 
ard Dietz’s “Gay Life.” 


NEW YORK — The initial classical 
product, consisting of eight albums, 
from Deutsche Grammophon Gesell- 
schaft to be handled by MGM Records 
is being released this week. 

Under the recent distribution agree- 
ment with DDG, the classical division 
of MGM will exclusively handle the 
new releases of DDG. Previously re- 
leased DDG items, previously released 
here by Decca, will not be handled by 
MGM until Jan. 1, 1963. 

LP’s arrive from Europe in indi- 
vidually-sealed polyethylene sleeves 
for MGM to insert into new jackets 
which are manufactured in the U.S. 
Disks carry the same prices that were 
in effect when the German label was 
handled by Decca ($5.98 mono, $6.98 
stereo). 


LOS ANGELES — Liberty Records 
had record sales and earnings for the 
fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 1962. 

President A1 Bennett said last week 
that sales increased 26% to $7,361,714 
and net income more than doubled to 
$646,365, equivalent to $1.06 per share 
on the 607,277 shares outstanding as 
compared to the previous fiscal year. 

For the 12 months ended Jan. 31, 
1961, sales were $5,852,439 with net 
income of $290,921, equal to 48$ per 
share on the 604,500 shares then out- 
standing. 

Warner Bros. LP Program 
Discounts Entire Catalog 

NEW YORK — Warner Bros. Records 
is offering a 25% discount on its en- 
tire LP catalog during April. Program 
includes three months dating, May 10, 
June 10 and July 10. 


NEW YORK — An adult vocal-instru- 
mental group, Joy & The Boys, has 
just been signed to Atlantic Records, 
and a prediction from prexy Ahmet 
Ertegun is that the songsters will 
have as great an impact in the in- 
dustry as Mitch Miller’s sing-along- 
sters or the twist craze. 

Signing of the coast outfit took 
place in Seattle after Ertegun re- 
cently made a special trip to hear the 
group perform at Rosselini’s 410 Club. 

A session, under Ertegun’s direc- 
tion, was held last week in Los An- 
geles. Group’s initial single is due 
April 15, to be followed shortly by 
an album. 

“Word about the group has reached 
club owners across the country, and 
there is now tremendous competition 
to book them,” Ertegun said. 

Members of the team (left to right 
in the photo) are: Frank Cook, vo- 


The new albums include complete 
performances of Puccini’s “La Bo- 
heme” and Orff’s “Antigonae,” a re- 
cital by pianist Sviatoslav Richter, 
“New Directions in German Music,” 
Brahms and Franck violin and piano 
sonatas with violinist Wolfgang 
Schneiderhan, and pianist Carl See- 
mann, Mozart’s symphonies Nos. 29 
and 41 by the Vienna Symphony Or- 
chestra conducted by Ferenc Fricsay, 
Haydn’s symphonies Nos. 94 and 101 
by The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra 
under Karl Richter’s direction; and 
Mozart’s piano concertos Nos. 17 and 
21 with Geza Anda, pianist and con- 
ductor, and the Orchestra of the 
Camerata Academica. 


Bennett said the increasing popu- 
larity of stereo, comprising 34% of 
the company’s LP sales, has stimu- 
lated the market and is conducive to 
the establishment of larger home li- 
braries of records. He added that al- 
bums in mono and stereo accounted 
for 57% of Liberty’s sales in fiscal 
’62. 

Bennett stated that the company’s 
contract with EMI Records, Ltd., Lon- 
don, has been negotiated to provide 
for an annual minimum royalty 
guarantee with distribution through- 
out most of Europe and the Eastern 
Hemisphere. He said minimum 
guarantees from EMI and other for- 
eign distribution are expected to ex- 
ceed $200,000 for the current fiscal 
year. During fiscal 1962, Bennett 
stated, Liberty’s direct exports totaled 
more than $250,000 in net sales in ad- 
dition to the royalties received. 


cals, guitar and harmonica; Jim Cook, 
vocal, guitar and banjo; Joy Brules, 
vocals; Paul Andrews, male lead and 
string bass; Merle Koch, vocals and 
piano (also pictured are Ertegun and 
Lou Lavinthal, C&C Dist., Atlantic’s 
Seattle distributor). 

Joy & The Boys have been together 
for about a year, having played in 
the Seattle area most of the time, 
except for a stint at the Hurrah Club 
in Reno. 

Jim Cook replaced Dick Haymes in 
the Tommy Dorsey band during the 
’40’s. Merle Koch was formerly a fea- 
tured pianist with the Pete Fountain 
Band. 

The outfit will perform at the open- 
ing of the Seattle World’s Fair, and 
the label will cut the group doing the 
Fair’s theme song, “Meet Me In Se- 
attle At The Fair.”

Pick of the Week 


“EVERYBODY LOVES ME BUT “HERE COMES THAT FEELIN’ ” 
YOU” (2:26) (2:07) 

[Champion BMI — Self] [Doral BMI — Burnett, Osborn] 

BRENDA LEE (Decca 31379) 

Take your pick here. Little Miss Hit-maker Brenda Lee can easily have 
a pair of smash follow-ups to her current top ten stand, “Break It To Me 
Gently.” “Everybody Loves Me But You” finds the thrush at her emo- 
tional beat-ballad best (with an effective mid-deck recitation) while “Here 
Comes That Feelin’ ” displays her slick twistin’-blues style. Stellar ork- 
choral support on two stands that mean money-in-the-bank for all con- 
cerned. 


“WALK ON WITH THE DUKE” (2:00) 

[Conrad, Karlan BMI — Furizo, Pirollo, Spano, Naham, Testa, Carter] 
“LONDON TOWN” (2:20) [Conrad, Karlan BMI— Williams] 

THE DUKE OF EARL (VeeJay 440) 

“The Duke Of Earl” appears to have a smash follow-up to his current 
chart-topping VeeJay outing. This one, tabbed “Walk On With The 
Duke,” is a fabulous rock-a-twist session that opens in “Duke”-like style. 
Ultra-commercial vocal and musical support. “London Town,” on the 
other end, features an unusual horns-without-strings sound on a fascinat- 
ing tango-like opus. Can also make the grade. 


“CONSCIENCE” (2:28) [Aldon BMI— Mann, Weil] 

“DREAM BIG” (2:06) [Colpix ASCAP— Baron, Ross] 

JAMES DARREN (Colpix 630) 

Actor and disk hit-maker Darren, who now has a pair of trophy winners 
in “Goodbye Cruel World” and “Her Royal Majesty,” is a solid bet to 
make it three-in-a-row with this one. It’s a captivating, change-of-pace 
cha cha romancer that has Darren playing two parts, his “Conscience” 
and himself. Delightful arrangement supplied by Stu Phillips and his 
instrumentalists. Jimmy displays an engaging swing style on the “Dream 
Big” portion. 


“NUMBER ONE MAN” (2:19) 

[LeBill BMI — Channel, Cobb, Montgomery] 

“IF I HAD ONLY KNOWN” (1:58) [LeBill BMI— Howard, Hall] 
BRUCE CHANNEL (Smash 1752) 

Channel, who’s still cashing in big -with his #1 Smash waxing, “Hey! 
Baby,” has another great chance to latch onto that prime position. 
“Number One Man,” the side that could do it, is a delectable, steady 
beat thumper that has a flavor of his initial success. Dandy instrumenta- 
tion with the harmonica spotlited throughout the lid. Coupler’s a heart- 
breaking beat-ballad stand that also packs a solid sales punch. 


“FUNNY” (2:13) [Chappell & Co. ASCAP— Holofcener] 
“CHAPEL OF TEARS” (2:02) [Metric, Gregmark BMI — Frazier] 
GENE McDANIELS (Liberty 55444) 

McDaniels, who recently placed “Chip Chip” under his hit belt, should 
do likewise with the fetching newcomer. It’s a swinging finger-snapper, 
tabbed “Funny,” that Gene delivers in sparkling style. Terrific choral 
(Johnny Mann Singers) and ork showcase. “Chapel Of Tears” is an 
inviting beat-ballad waltz weeper that can also step way out. 


“SING” (2:47) “HEARTS” (3:20) 

[Merrimac BMI — Wyche, Kasha, [East-West ASCAP — Stock] 
Wilson] 

JACKIE WILSON (Brunswick 55225) 

Wilson’s newest solo effort (he’s currently riding the charts with Linda 
Hopkins on “There’s Nothing Like Love”) looks like another big back- 
to-back pairing. One half, “Sing (And Tell The Blues So Long),” takes 
an exciting shuffle-twist ride while the other, “Hearts,” is from the senti- 
mental, shuffle-ballad dept. Splendid, two-sided ork-choral assists from 
Dick Jacobs’ aggregation. 


“FOLLOW THAT DREAM” (1:35) [Gladys ASCAP— Wise, Wiseman] 
“ANGEL” (2:35) [Gladys ASCAP — Tepper, Bennett] 

“WHAT A WONDERFUL LIFE” (2:28) 

[Gladys ASCAP — Wayne, Livingston] 

“I’M NOT THE MARRYING KIND” (1:49) 

[Gladys ASCAP — David, Edwards] 

ELVIS PRESLEY (RCA Victor EPA 4368) 

Elvis, who’s currently zooming up the charts with his “Good Luck Charm” 
— “Anything That’s Part Of You” single, offers four more contenders 
for smashville via this EP release. They’re 4 tunes from his forthcoming 
pic, “Follow That Dream.” The title tune, “What A Wonderful Life” 
and “I’m Not The Marrying Kind” are delightful rock-a-rhythmics while 
“Angel” is from the soft Latin beat ballad school. A power-packed sales 

( package. 




THE CORVELLS (Lu-Pine 1004) 

(B+) “BABY SITTING” (2:25) 
[Lupine BMI — Thomas, West] 
The Atlantic-distributed Lu-Pine la- 
bel, currently hot with the Falcons’ 
“I Found A Love,” can have another 
chart-maker via the Corvells’ dynamic 
rock-a-eha-cha bow. Could be a big 
winner in both r&b and pop circles. 

(B) “HE’S SO FINE” (2:25) 
[West-Higgens BMI - — Scho- 
field, Finnie, West] Look for this 
rock-a-cha-eha opus to also make 
chart noise. 


TED TAYLOR (Apt 25063) 

(B+) “LITTLE THINGS MEAN A 
LOT” (2:50) [Leo Feist AS- 
CAP — Stutz, Lindeman] Taylor can 
do big business with this haunting, 
beat-ballad revival of the while-back 
Kitty Kallen smasheroo. Deck has the 
sound that could make it in both r&b 
and pop circles. 

(B+) “MY DAYS AND NIGHTS 
ARE SO BLUE” (2:01) [Ron- 
nat BMI — Taylor] A little more on 
the blues side is this rockin’, quick 
beat lament. Two strong stands. 


LONNIE SATIN (Scepter 1229) 

(B+) “(I Wonder, Who’s Gonna 

Mention) MY NAME” (2:27) 
[Ludix BMI — Dixon] Powerful teen- 
market performance of an interesting 
inspirational. Satin’s portrayal of a 
man who is about to be judged on his 
life on earth is strong, as is the rock- 
a-string & chorus accompaniment. 

(B) “I BELIEVE” (3:15) [Crom- 
well ASCAP — Drake, Graham, 
Shirl, Stillman] Good feeling for the 
familiar inspirational. 


ADDRISI BROS. (Warner Bros. 5268) 

(B+) “THE DANCE IS OVER 
(Dance With Me)” (2:19) 
[Safari BMI — D&D Addrisi] Haunt- 
ing teen-ballad opus is distinctively 
handled by the songsters and their 
backing, which is spotlighted _ by a 
soulful trombone solo. An original- 
sounding entry that could do big Top 
100 business. 

(B) “SLEEPING BEAUTY” 
(1:45) [Odin ASCAP— Weid- 
ler] Boys are in appealing tender-rock 
form here. 


FRED DA RIAN (Jaf 2501) 

(B+) “JACOBS LADDER” (2:10) 
[Balladeer ASCAP — Arr. 
deLory, Van Winkle, Darian] Fine, 
smooth-sounding folk approach by the 
songster on the pretty item tagged 
after the nautical term. Deck’s in the 
folk vein that has come through with 
a chart standing. Label is distributed 
by Era. 

(B) “DIDN’T I CRY” (2:03) [Pat- 
tern & Balladeer ASCAP — 
deLory, Van Winkle, Darian] Sunny 
spiritual-flavored outing. 


SISTER ROSETTA THARPE 

(Verve 10249) 

(B+) “THAT’S ALL” (1:53) [Mills 
— ASCAP — Tharpe] Sister 
Rosetta launches her lyrical vocal tal- 
ents of this rousing, self-penned 
novelty-gospel item culled from her 
Verve album “The Gospel Truth.” 
Tune has a clever commercial lyric 
and the thrush gives the side a potent 
Ray Charles-styled delivery. 

(B+) “THIS IS A MEAN OLD 
WORLD TO LIVE IN” (3:04) 
[Mills — ASCAP — Tharpe] This time 
out the lark offers a shuffle-beat tradi- 
tion-oriented religious tune also taken 
from her current album. Plenty of 
potential here. 


CAROLE & SHERRY (Pop-Side 10) 

(B+) “I AIN’T READY YET’ : 

(1:59) [B. F. Wood ASCAP— 
Bayer, Harway, Gluck] A bright rock 
date from the femmes ties-in with the 
twist rage. Musicians deliver the step 
with fine twist zip. 

(B) “LIKE I GOTTA GET 
AWAY” (2:30) [B. F. Wood 
ASCAP — Bayer, Harway, Lauber] 
Gals are again heard on the upbeat. 


JERRY CAPEHART (Crest 1101) 

(B+) “(Theme for) THE YOUNG 
& BLUE” (2:20) [American 
BMI — Capehart] Soulful tune is done 
with a moody sound by a harmonica 
organ and wordless chorus. Can gef 
around. 

(B) “SONG OF NEW ORLEANS’ 
(1:55) [American BMI — Cape- 
hart] Both the tune and zither-like 
instrumental add-up to a “Third Mar 
Theme” sound. 


THE STARLITERS (Dot 16345) 

(B+) “THE PARKWOOD TWIST’ 
(2:20) [Cigma BMI — Boze- 
man] Here’s twistin’ with solid sound 
value for the teen-market. Songster? 
and chorus plus combo are a per- 
suasive combination. Might move. 

(B) “THEME FROM PARI. 

WOOD (Farewell To Love)’ 
(2:01) [Cigma BMI — Bozeman' 
Pretty portion on the order of Floy 
Cramer’s cuts. 


JOHNNY OTIS (King 5606) 

(B+) “SHE’S ALL RIGHT” (2:20) 
[Sonlo-O-Cal BMI — Kelly 
Otis] There’s an effective, sly-beai 
touch to this good-natured blues-stylec 
session. A grow-on-you date that 
could come up with action. 

(B) “IT MUST BE LOVE” (2:31) 
[O-Cal BMI — McKinney] Otis 
and his support offer a more lusty 
sound here. 


BILL DOGGETT (Columbia 42384) 

(B) “BUSTER” (2:50) [Islip BMI 

Doggett] Vet organist pops up 
on the Columbia label with a cheerful 
gospel-flavored session. Lots of jocks 
will want to convey the side’s good- 
feeling to their listeners. 

(B) “LADY’S CHOICE” (2:55) 

[Curtom BMI — Mayfield] Sax 
is spotlighted in this jazzy, after-hours 
blues pose. 


SPENCER STERLING (Bigtop 3104) 

(B) “JILTED” (2:42) [Vicki BMI 

— McKenzie, King, Sterling] 
Some haunting teen-slanted comments 
from both the songster and his ork 
backing. Youngsters will dig the ap- 
proach. 

(B) “YOUNG IN YEARS” (2:21) 

[Starfire & Vicki BMI — Rich- 
ards, Meshel] Wistful number is done 
in polished slow-beat fashion. 


THE CORDIALS (Reveille 106) 

(B+) “THE INTERNATIONA! 

TWIST” (2:39) [Garpax 
Janell BMI — Paxton, McRae] Aftei 
an opening statement that the world 
should twist its troubles away, the 
warblers and their combo perform 
with fine twist finesse. A better twist 
take. 

(B) “ETERNAL LOVE” (2:50) 
[Garpax & Trinity BMI — Ca- 
pizzi, Capizzi] Fellas nicely warm-up 
to the affectionate.

Pick of the Week 


“DON’T PLAY THAT SONG (YOU LIED)” (2:38) 
[Progressive BMI — Nugetre] 

“THE HERMIT OF MISTY MOUNTAIN” (2:18) 

[Home Folks BMI — Batchelor, Roberts] 

BEN E. KING (Atco 6222) 

Ben E. King, who recently added “Ecstasy” to his long list of chart 
credits, should soon have another hit link in “Don’t Play That Song (You 
Lied).” Stand, set in an intriguing Latin-beat “Stand By Me” format, 
builds along the way via Ben’s potent vocal and Jimmie Haskell’s fine 
ork-choral backdrop. Coupler’s a haunting, search-for-love jumper. 


“BIG BOAT” (2:01) [Lionel ASCAP — Paretti, Creatore, Weiss] 
“THE RIDDLE” (2:24) 

[Bright Tunes BMI — Adapt: P. & M. Margo, Medress, Seigal] 

THE TOKENS (RCA Victor 8018) 

The coming weeks are sure to find the Tokens sailing full-steam up the 
hit lists aboard their latest Victor outing, “Big Boat.” It’s a wild, gim- 
mick-filled African-like chant cut from the “Lion Sleeps Tonight” — “B’wa 
Nina” mold. Sensational Sammy Lowe ork support with Bunny Shawker 
and Jack Saunders handing in some great percussive bits. Coupler’s a 
warm teen-ballad up-dating of the charming folk item. 


“BALBOA BLUE” (2:27) [Lock— E. D. M. ASCAP— Saraceno, Murphy] 
“STOMPEDE” (2:27) [Lock— E. D. M. ASCAP— Hall, Randal] 


THE CHESSMEN (Amy 841) 

(B+) “PICK IT UP” (1:51) [Aim 
& Ernkel BMI— McGee] This 
is a whacky teen-instrumental belt, 
with guitars and sax providing the 
top sounds. Voice now-and-then says 
“pick it up.” Sure-handed rock attack. 

(B) “STORMY DREAMS” (2:33) 
[Ernkel BMI — McGee] Musi- 
cians offer a mysterious relaxed rock 
sound here. 


CARMEL QUINN (Headline 1014) 

(B+) “I ENJOY BEING A GIRL” 
(2:25) [Williamson ASCAP — 
Rodgers, Hammerstein] Cut in Lon- 
don, the lark and her backing do a 
fine breezy swing stint on the stand- 
out number from “Flower Drum 
Song.” This deck is a worthy addi- 
tion to “good-music” programming. 

(B) “LAST TIME I SAW PARIS” 
(2:50) [T. B. Harms ASCAP 
— Kern, Hammerstein] Properly warm 
reading of the perennial. 

PAMELA LAW (Boyd 119) 

(B+) “SECRET” (2:37) [Knobhill 
BMI — Riley] Pamela Law dis- 
plays an ear-arresting ballad style as 
she warmly caresses this tender bal- 
lad-with-a-beat romancer. Inviting 
choral and strings-with-triplets sup- 
port. 


GARY MILLS (London 9504) 

(B+) “I’LL STEP DOWN” (2:25) 
[Leeds ASCAP — Tepper, Ben- *. 
nett] Catchy ditty with a countryish 
feel is done with a pleasing easy-go 
rock-a-billy sound. Worth teen-mar- 
ket programming. 

(B) “TREASURE ISLAND’' 
(2:03) [Harvard BMI — Comp- 
ton, Jones] Relaxed rock swinger 
about a fella who wants to have his 
chick to himself on a treasure island. ' 


TANI JONES (Mosaic 1005) 

(B) “HALF PAST LOVE TIME” 

(2:20) [Nasta BMI — Stanley] 
Cute teen-romantic statement from 
the vocalist. Her sprightly rock combo 
backing is topped by an organ. Era 
handles the label. 

(B) “MY OTHER ME” (1:54) 

[Nasta BMI — Stanley] Me- 
dium-beat novelty about a gal who 
battles her “other me,” her personal- 
ity. 


TONY ALLEN (Bethlehem 3004) 

(B+) “THE TRAKEY-DOO” (2:45) * 
[O-Cal BMI — Otis] Dance is 
explained in an infectious R&B-fla- 
vored manner by the songster and his 
musical support. Teeners will like the 4 
good-natured work here. 


THE MARKETTS (Liberty 55443) 

The instrumentalists, who clicked the first-time-out on Liberty, can be 
in for more of the same happy chart results with this second entry. It’s 
another stompin’ handclapper, dubbed “Balboa Blue,” that sports a 
captivating melody. “Stompede” continues the bright teen beat pace on 
the flip. Both lids are from their “Surfer’s Stomp” album. 


“FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE” (2:41) 

[Winneton BMI — Greines] 

“LITTLE MISS LOVELY” (2:24) [Winneton BMI— David] 
ADAM WADE (Coed 567) 

Look for Adam Wade’s latest Coed entry to be all over the airwaves in 
the near future. Side’s an enchanting ballad filter, titled “For The First 
Time In My Life,” that Adam and ork-chorus put across with touching 
sincerity. Beautiful job that the platter spinner’ll flip over. “Little Miss 
Lovely” makes for a charming ballad companion piece. Excellent two- 
sider. 


(B) “NATURALLY” (2:14) 
[Knobhill BMI — Riley] This 
end finds the gal in a complete change- 
of-pace, knocking out a solid rhythm 
handclapper. Lotsa spirit here. 


KENNY GILL (Montel 909) 

(B) “PLEDGING MY LOVE” 

(2:09) [Weimar — Lion BMI] 
This soft and pretty instrumental re- 
vival of the while-back Johnny Ace 
success easily fits in the platter spin- 
ners programming schedule. Side’s 
from the artist’s “Fascinating Guitar” 
LP. 

(B) “MARY ANN” (2:01) This 
end, also from the LP, is a high flying 
raunchy blues type affair. There’s lots 
of twist-a-bility here. 


(B) “IT HURTS ME SO” (2:25) 
[O-Cal BMI — Otis, Allen] 
Fella doesn’t want his gal to call it 4 
quits in this medium-beat blueser. 

THE MANHATTANS (Capitol 4730) 

(B+) “LA LA LA” (2:05) [William- 
son ASCAP — Rodgers] A 
charming song from “No Strings” 
gets a commercial, easy Latin-rock 
outing from the mixed song crew. 
Could go places if it gets enough ex- 
posure. 

(B) “SING ALL THE DAY” ' 
(2:05) [Glamorous ASCAP — 
Marchese, Fenderson, Ogermann] A 
rock-slanted sunny with a spiritual 
feel. 


“DON’T TAKE AWAY YOUR LOVE” (2:43) [Arch ASCAP— Goodman) 
“MOMENT OF WEAKNESS” (2:10) 

[Hill & Range BMI — Giant, Shaw] 

JOHNNY NASH (Warner Bros. 5270) 

The fine vocal stylist can come through with either end, or both, of his 
Warner Bros. bow. Topside, “Don’t Take Away Your Love,” is a heart- 
felt, soft cha cha beat opus that Nash puts across with telling effect. 
“Moment Of Weakness” features more top drawer romantic cha cha 
beat sounds. Stellar two-sided ork-choral support from the Stan Apple- 
baum outfit. 


BOBBY VALENTINO (Lita 1003) 

(B) “SPECIAL DELIVERY 
(Please)” (2:15) [Lita BMI— 
Jones] A wailing, recitation type 
blueser from Valentino, who’s sup- 
ported by a lush easy-beat roek-a- 
string arrangement. Overall approach 
should interest the kids. 

(B) “HOW DEEP IS THE 
OCEAN” (1:57) [Irving Ber- 
lin ASCAP — Berlin] The evergreen is 
done as an earthy blues opus. Effec- 
tive affair. 


JUNIOR MANCE (Jazzland 45715) 

(B) “EXODUS” (2:25) [Chappell 

ASCAP — Gold] Junior Mance 1 
displays top-drawer piano artistry on 
this melodic, interpretive free-flowing 
jazz rendition of the popular flick 
theme. The ork also shines on the wax^ 

(B) “NEVER ON SUNDAY”* 

(2:43) [Esteem & Skidmore 
BMI — Hadjidakis] Here Mance at- 
tacks another film theme. This time 
his approach is good-humored and 
light. Interesting deck. 


“DON’T LET HIM TAKE MY BABY” (2:37) 

[Arch ASCAP — Schroeder, King] 

“THE LOVE EXPRESS” (2:10) 

[Arch ASCAP — Alfred, Ballard, Jr.] 

THE VELVETS (Monument 458) 

The Velvets can head back to “Tonight (Could Be The Night)” hit terri- 
tory as they come thru with an emotion-packed rock-a-cha-cha romancer 
tabbed “Don’t Let Him Take My Baby.” Ultra-commercial cut with Virgil 
Johnson slickly handling lead chores. Mitty Collier has the gal’s version 
on Chess. “The Love Express” moves along at an enjoyable jump-a-twist 
clip. Watch it too. 


“PLEASE TELL ME” (2:15) [Champion BMI— Malis] 

“SUGAR CAKE” (2:03) [One O’Clock BMI— Kett] 

CATHY JEAN & THE ROOMATES (Valmor 16) 

Cathy Jean & The Roomates, who rode high a short- while-back with 
“Please Love Me Forever,” are teamed up once again on another deck 
with loads of teen appeal. It’s a feelingful, beat-ballad romantic pleader, 
tabbed “Please Tell Me,” that spotlites the lark’s interesting vocal lead. 
Backing’s a bubbly rock-a-cha-cha opus. 


Don Gibson dishes up another hot Victor duo that’s loaded with dual- 
mart, country-pop potential. They’re “I Can Mend Your Broken Heart” 
| and “i Let Her Get Lonely.” See Country Reviews. 


THE DIAMONDS (Mercury 71956) 

(B) “VANISHING AMERICAN” 
(2:25) [Bennie Benjamin AS- 
CAP— Benjamin, Marcus, Bandino] 
Vet songsters are in good rock humor 
as they relay the novelty, heard in an 
MGM pic called “The Horizontal 
Lieutenant.” A swing rock laff date 
that could make noise. 

(B) “THE HORIZONTAL LIEU- 
TENANT” (2:07) [Robbins 
ASCAP — -Uger, Stoll, Pasternak] The 
main-title is a spirited march number 
on an officer who’s quite a lady’s man. 


THE PACESETTERS (Wink 1008) 

(B+) “RONNIE’S BEAT” (2:15)* 
[Audicon BMI — Shirillo] 
“Ronnie’s Beat” is what the teeners 
appreciate. Sound is happy in a blues 
manner, with a handclap stint an ef- ’ 
fective accompaniment to the musi- 
cian’s work. Pro hop issue. Diskery is 
based in N. Y. 

(B) “THAT’S ALL” (2:30)* 
[Travis ASCAP — Haymes, 
Brandt] Easy-go rockin’, including a 
soft sans lyric chorus, for the lovely 
mainstay. » 


BOB BRANDON (Emcee 1962) 

(B) “POPPA’S LAND” (2:48) 
[BMI — Ricard] Brandon, for- 
merly a teacher at Michigan’s Wayne 
State University, starts a folk sing- 
ing career on disks with a nice por- 
trayal of a catchy tune which he 
wrote under his real name, Bob Ric- 
ard. Label is based in Pontiac, Mich. 

(B) “MY GUITAR” (2:28) [BMI 
— Carson, Chamberlain] Easy 
countryish affair. The Jordanaires 
back-up on both ends. 


GORDON MacRAE (Capitol 4736) 

(B+) “THE SWEETEST SOUNDS” 
(2:13) [Williamson ASCAP— 
Rodgers] The worthy ballad from “No 
Strings” is done with top legit taste 
by the songster. Rich ork backdrop 
has a fine Latin touch. Figure strong 
exposure on “good-music” outlets. 

(B) “NOBODY TOLD ME” (2:52) 
(2:52) [Williamson ASCAP— 
Rodgers] A more intimate approach 
to another fine romantic from the 
show.

the Top 100) the editorial staff ot Cash Box will list such records under this special heading. 


“FUN HOUSE” (1:55) [Ultra BMI— Adler, Alpert] 
“CHICKEN HOP” (2:06) [Ultra BMI— Hodge, Fox] 

THE ROOSTERS (Felsted 8642) 

This one’s already collecting territorial loot. It’s a colorful instrumental 
rock-a-twist’er, tabbed “Fun House,” that should give Top 100 recogni- 
tion to the Roosters. Plenty of happy gimmicks and shouts along the 
way. Crew shuffles the twist on the “Chicken Hop” portion. 


“THE GLIDER” (2:20) [Skidmore BMI— Straigis] 
“MY MOON IS HANGIN’ LOW TONIGHT” (2:24) 
[Skidmore ASCAP — Straigis, Reichner] 

ROY & THE ORIGINAL JONES BOYS (Smash 1754) 


This one has that ‘out of left field’ sleeper hit look. It’s about an infec- 
tious, twist-like dance, tagged “The Glider,” that Roy & the Original 
Jones Boys wax with lotsa teen appeal. Slide trombone and sax com- 
bine for a weird musical effect that should help sell the lid. Pairing finds 
the group in a throbbing beat-ballad stand. 


“LEMON TREE” (2:52) [Boulder ASCAP— Holt] 
‘EARLY IN THE MORNING” (1:33) [Harms ASCAP— Stookey] 


PETER, PAUL & MARY (Warner Bros. 5274) 

As a result of deejay reaction to this track in the “Peter, Paul & Mary” 
Warner Bros. LP debut, the diskery is releasing it as a single. It’s a 
quick moving folk item, titled “Lemon Tree,” that sports a tantalizing 
storyline. First rate, gimmick-free vocal approach should put the side 
in the hit spotlite. The faster-paced “Early In The Morning” spiritual 
also rates a close look. Artists support themselves, on guitar, in top 
notch manner. 


“DON’T 


TO 


LET HER TAKE MY “I DEDICATE MY LIFE 
BABY” (2:18) YOU” (2:50) 

[Arch ASCAP — Schroeder, King] [Arc BMI — Thompson, Bass] 
MITTY COLLIER (Chess 1814) 

Either end of this Chess outing can give Mitty Collier her first big chart 


break. “Don’t Let Her Take My Baby” is a potent rock-a-cha-cha roman- 
tic pleader while “I Dedicate My Life To You” is a pulsating, beat-ballad 
hip-swinger. Superb string-filled ork support on two standout perform- 
ances by the lark. 


“VOICE OF EXPERIENCE” (2:18) [Ludix BMI— Rogers, Patton] 

“I WANCHA’ TO BE SURE” (2:04) [Sea-Lark BMI— Williams] 
TAMMY MONTGOMERY (Wand 123) 

This Wand session has what it takes to put Tammy Montgomery up 
among the front runners. Against an infectious femme backdrop that 
tells her to listen to the “Voice Of Experience” Tammy hands in a first- 
rate, cha-cha beat vocal job. More attention-getting rock-a-cha-cha 
sounds on the underlid. 


“THE WORM” [Bloor — Hoffman “THE BUMP” [Ding Dong BMI— 
House BMI — Stokes, Willis] Quaries, Venetoulis] 

THE SOUVENIRS (Reprise 20065) 

Here’s one of the catchiest back-to-back dance affairs to come along in 
quite awhile. They’re happy-go-lucky ditties that the Souvenirs knock 
out in coin-catching vocal and instrumental fashion. “The Worm” is a 
gospel-styled rock-a-shuffle stand while “The Bump” takes a rock-a-cha- 
cha-like ride. There’re gimmicks galore on both ends. Teeners oughta 
pick up on this duo real quick. 



KATHY YOUNG (Indigo 146) 
(B+) 


“I’LL HANG MY LETTERS 
OUT TO DRY” (2:14) [Beech- 
wood BMI — Kramer, Ross] Lark, who 
made it awhile-back with “A Thousand 
Stars,” could do chart business again 
with this pro plaintive date. This 
intimate teen-ballad outing should be 
eyed. 


VARDI & HIS ORCH. 

(Kapp Medallion 613) 


(B+) 


“YUKON TRAIL” (2:12) 
[George Pincus & Sons 
ASCAP — - Maxwell] A tuneful item 
gets a rich-sounding, ork march-tempo 
run-through. There’s an excitement 
here that could mean a Top 100 berth 
for the track. 


(B) 


“LONELY BLUE NIGHTS” 
(2:25) [Figure BMI — Hamlin] 
Another cozy teen-market cut. 


(B) 


“YOU YOU YOU” (2:25) 
[Robert Mellin BMI — Mellin, 
Olias] The old Ames Bros, hit gets a 
brisk foxtrot arrangement. 


16 


RALPH MARTERIE 

(United Artists 447) 

(B+) “CARAVAN TWIST” (2:30) 
[American Academy of Music 
ASCAP — Ellington, Tizol] Vet 
maestro joins the twist bandwagon 
with a sax-led twist chore on the in- 
strumental favorite. Some jazz touches 
make for good listening. 

(B) “DRY MARTERIE WITH A 
TWIST” (2:05) [Judy AS- 
CAP — Marterie, Herman] Good 
bluesy guitar-led twistin’ and a clever 
title for a tag. 


THE CUPIDS (UWR 4241) 

(B+) “(If You Crv) TRUE LOVE 
TRUE LOVE” (2:29) [Tred- 
lew, Tiger, Brittany BMI — Pomus, 
Shuman] New diskery, based in 
Brooklyn, N.Y., is evidently hip to 
teen sounds, for this quick-beat, chant- 
gimmick reading of the old Drifters’ 
hit carries solid rock-market weight. 
Effective new view of the ditty. 

(B+) “LET’S TWIST (Say Man 
Let’s Twist)” (2:17) [Twin 
Tone BMI— Norman] Here’s twistin’ 
that also makes its teen point with 
lots of pro rock vitality. 


HILLARD STREET (Reprise 20,069) 
(B+) “INVISIBLE CHAINS” (2:45) 
[Landsdowne-Winston ASCAP 
— Schwimmer, Garcia, Venet] Street’s 
big-voice is well suited to this emo- 
tional roek-a-string outing, which 
nicely employs a keyboard with a con- 
certo-like touch done with attention- 
getting polish. 

(B) “THE BEST ACTRESS (In 
The World)” (2:10) [Ding 
Dong BMI — Street, Pincus] Unusual 
falsetto chants by Street highlight 
this bluesy outing, also including a 
funky harmonica sound. Could get 
some action. 


JOHNNY VICTOR (Dolton 53) 

(B) “THE TEARS YOU NEVER 
CRIED” (2:21) [Hill & Range 
BMI — Batchelor, Roberts] This a 
warm narrative-type affair about _ a 
guy’s letter to a gal who done him 
wrong. Soft guitar-led accompani- 
ment. An effective plaintive portion. 
(C-f) “COME TO ME JOHNNY” 
(2:12) [Hill & Range BMI — 
Batchelor, Roberts] Dramatic doings 
on a “sick” theme. It’s tough to get 
plays on this sort of thing these days. 


TENNESSEE ERNIE FORD 

(Capitol 4734) 

(B+) “TAKE YOUR GIRLIE TO 
THE MOVIES” (2:25) [Mills 
ASCAP — Wending, Leslie, Kalmer] 
The delicious ancient gets a delight- 
fully rowdy oldtime reading by the 
performer and clever instrumental 
support. Side, from Ford’s “Show- 
boat” LP, can really go over. 

(B) “THERE’LL BE NO NEW 
TUNES ON THIS OLD PI- 
ANO” (2:02) [Bulls-Eye ASCAP— 
Lange, Heath] Today’s sounds are en- 
gagingly out-of-order again on an- 
other offering from the album. 


BUDDY DE FRANCO- 
TOMMY GUMINA QUARTET 

(Mercury 71947) 

(B+) “THEME FROM ROUTE 66” 
(2:42) [Gower BMI — Riddle] 
Here’s a polished, feelingful reading 
of the theme from the “Route 66” 
TV’er by the Buddy DeFranco-Tommy 
Gumina Quartet. The group takes an 
effective rollicking beat for the Nelson 
Riddle-penned tune. Plenty of poten- 
tial here. 

(B) “NEVER ON FRIDAY” 
(2:41) [Emarcy ASCAP — • 
Gumina] This time out the group of- 
fers a slow-paced original blues item 
which showcases the solo abilities of 
DeFranco on clarinet and Gumina on 
accordion. 


CHUCK DALLAS (KC 102) 


(B+) “COME ON LET’S GO” (2:27) 
[Lyndale BMI — Dallas, Glenn, 
Varwig] From Nat King Cole’s new 
coast label, songster Dallas offers a - 
bouncy blues opus against a steady { 
upbeat sound from the guitar-led 
musicians. Agreeable blueser. 


(B) 


“IMAGE OF YOU” (2:04) 
[Lyndale BMI — Dallas, Glenn, 
Sisco] This relaxed end has Dallas ‘ 
sounding much like Fats Domino. 


MUDDY WATERS (Chess 1819) 


(B+) “GOING HOME” (2:50) [Arc ‘ 
BMI — Brown, Morganfield] 
Muddy Waters’ impressive, distinctive ^ 
style carries him in good stead on this 
slow-paced, tradition-oriented r&b 
side. The songster’s sincere delivery 
coupled with a first-rate lyric should 
attract some attention for the wax. -* 


(B) 


“TOUGH TIMES” (2:25) } 

[Arc BMI — Brown, Morgan- 
field] Here’s an effective brassy, , 
chorus-backed etching with Waters A 
turning in a top-flight job in the 
chanting department. 


THE KNIGHTS (Felsted 8640) 


(B+) “NIGHT TRAIN” (2:07) , 

[Frederick BMI — Forrest, * 
Washington, Simpkins] Another rock 
appearance for the old blues number, ^ 
and it’s a persuasive, hard-hitting 
twist product from the musicians. 
Solid rockin’. 


(B) 


“WHITE FANG” (2:24) 
[Barbrob ASCAP — Wisner] 

A touch of “Tequila” is present in this^ 
sly Latinish affair. 


SCOTT ENGEL (Liberty 55428) 


(B+) “ANYTHING WILL DO” > 
(1:57) [Asa & Chadick AS- 
CAP — Arno, Day, Hart] Teeners re- 
ceives a pro rock rythmic here. Ditty, 
which takes a philosophic view of to- 
day’s teen sounds, is delivered with ' 


pro big-beat vitality by Engel, who is 


backed by a happy rock-a-string & 
chorus stint. Could showup. 


(B) 


‘FOREVERMORE (Lei Aloha 
Lei Makamae)” (2:17) [Cri- 
terion ASCAP — King] Old Hawaiian 
sentimental is warmly rendered. 


EDDIE RAMBEAU (Swan 4105) 


(B+) “MY FOUR LEAF CLOVER 
LOVE” (2:40) [Claridge AS- 
CAP — Rambeau, Rehak] Speedy f 
twistable rocker whose overall sound 
recalls Neil Sedaka dates. The singer 
and his combo-femme chorus accom- 
paniment have neat teen zest. 


(B) 


“ANONYMOUS FLOWERS” 
(2:51) [Conley ASCAP — Slay, ^ 


Crewe] Bright display with a calyp- 


so manner. 


yt 


JONI DAVIS (Finer Arts 1006) 


(C+) “SOMEWHERE THERE IS 
SOMEONE” (2:15) [M. Bern-* 
stein ASCAP — Bernstein] Thrush 
does a plaintive vocal against a semi- 
rock combo-chorus sound. Diskery is 
based in Denver. 


(C+) “TOO LONESOME TO CRY” 
(2:30) [M. Bernstein ASCAP 
— Bernstein] Another wistful warble. 


PETER COLOMBO (Orchid 226) 
(B) 


I 


“MIGHTY JOHN GLENN” 
(2:00) [Pun-Jon BMI — 
Thomas, Pungitore] America’s space 
hero gets a sock-rock, twistable trib- 
ute. Good beat life here. Label does its 
business out of the Bronx, N. Y.

ME” (2:10) [Pun-Jon BMI — 
Thomas] Amiable shuffle-beat session. 


Cash Box — April 7, 1962 






(S)0 1695 


“Richard Rodgers need not have 
worried. He is still a magician of 
the musical theatre. Carrying on 
without the late Oscar Hammer- 
stein, the second of his two great 
collaborators, he has dipped into 
the freshest sources of his lyric 
gift. For his new musical, No 
Strings... he has composed a 
score full of romance and vivac- 
ity. Approaching 60, he has 
written enchanted music like a 
youngster who has discovered the 
unimaginable wonders of the 
notes in the tempered scale. He 
has taken on the challenge of be- 
ing his own lyricist and met it 
like a professional.” 

— Howard Taubman, 

NEW YORK TIMES 


“. . . some of Dick Rodgers’ best 
tunes and the magnetic Miss Car- 
roll to sell them. In our book, that 
spells a hot ticket!” 

— Robert Coleman, 
NEW YORK MIRROR 


“Rodgers just can’t think of any 
wrong notes, so his melodies are 
beguiling . . .” _j 0 hn Chapman, 
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS 


“...A score of romantic witchery.” 

-TIME MAGAZINE 




“Richard Rodgers, for the first 
time lyricist as well as composer, 
has written a particularly lovely 
score for No Strings. It is enough 
to say of Mr. Rodgers’ score that 
it shows him at his best, with his 
gift for melody at one of its mem- 
orable high peaks.” 

— Richard Watts, 
NEW YORK POST 


“The word from the theatre to- 
day is all heartening: Richard 
Rodgers can go it alone; we all 
knew he wrote great music and 
now he has established himself as 
his own very gifted lyricist. 
Diahann Carroll is a perfectly 
dreamy new star, and even the 
54th Street Theatre, which has 
been a jinx since its conversion 
from a TV studio, is now housing 
a whopping hit. Here, in my 
opinion, is a legalized nuclear 
cataclysm, an unqualified crowd- 
pleaser. Diahann Carroll is as 
fresh and lovely as a mountain 
flower, and her voice and assur- 
ance as an actress have pro- 
gressed and matured immeasur- 
ably in recent years. She does 
wonderful things with Mr. 
Rodgers’ hauntingly beautiful 
score. This is a fine show; get 
your orders in early.”

only those records best suited for commercial use are reviewed by Cash Box 





THE MARCELS (Colpix 629) 

(B+) “FOOTPRINTS IN THE 
SAND” (2:19) [Wemar BMI — 
Elias, Reid, Richards] Guys who put 
“Blue Moon” and some other stand- 
ards on the teen map with their 
whacky chant style offer an exciting 
teen sound here. Lead and fellow 
songsters do a very slick job on the 
first-rate item, and they’re supported 
by a strong Latinish instrumental 
sound. Can be another chart go for the 
team. 

(B-f) “TWISTIN’ FEVER” (2:05) 
[St. Louis BMI — Blackwell, 
Scott] Old ditty gets a sly, grow-on- 
you twist reading. Should also be eyed. 


DON SHIRLEY (Cadence 1420) 

(B-f) “STAND BY ME” (2:13) 
[Progressive, Trio, ADT BMI 
— King, Glick] Jazz-oriented pianist 
and his support offer an intriguing in- 
strumental go for the awhile-back 
Ben E. King smash. Though there are 
touches of the original arrangement 
employed, side can stand-up on its 
own and could develop into something. 
(B) “AMEN” (2:34) [Walbridge 
BMI — Shirley] Easy jazz 
swingin’ with a gospel flavor. 


BOBBY FREEMAN (Josie 896) 

(B+) “LITTLE GIRL DON’T YOU 
UNDERSTAND” (2:22) [Ben- 
ell BMI — -Constatino] The reliable 
rockster might get Top 100 action 
with this frantic, twistable belt date. 
His zest is matched by a continuously 
hot combo chore. Keep tabs on the 
take. 

(B) “LOVE ME” (2:07) [Benell & 
Clockus BMI — Freeman] 
Things move quickly as Freeman re- 
lates one about a guy who would like 
his chick to love him as he digs her. 


TONY RICHARDS (Carlton 572) 
(B+) “CARAVAN OF LONELY 
MEN” (2:00) [Trinity BMI— 
Pretlow, Barry] New songster can be 
a chart factor with this strong show- 
ing. His exciting stint in the potent 
Latinish romancer is backed by a 
sound that includes Spanish-flavored 
trumpet work. Side to eye closely. 
(B-f) “WIND-UP TOY” (1:55) 
[Trinity BMI — Barry, Res- 
nick] This novelty-romantic has lots 
of quick-beat sound value. Can also 
succeed. 


ARMANDO SCIASCIA (KC 101) 
(B+) “TIGER TWIST” (1:58) 
[Sweco BMI — Tical] This side, 
featured in the hit Italian pic, “Trop- 
pica De Notte” (also a big hit on 
Italy’s charts), can put Armando Sci- 
ascia & his Orch. in hitsville this side 
of the Atlantic. Real driving side with 
audience cheers and applause along 
the way. Could be a first-time-out 
smash for Nat Cole’s new label. 

(B) “BI-A-BI CHUCA” (2:00) 
[Sweco BMI — Tical] Coupler, 
also from the flick, is an ear-appealing 
samba-like shuffler. 


THE FASHIONS (Ember 1084) 

(B+) “TRY MY LOVE” (2:33) [An- 
gel-Cortez BMI — Clowney] 
Femme vocal crew could do chart bus- 
iness with this stint. It’s a busy- 
sounding chore by the larks is ac- 
companied by a potent combo sound. 
I Watch it. 

" (B) “I JUST GOT A LETTER” 
(2:36) [Angel-Cortez BMI — 
| Clowney] There’s also effective blues 
I color here. 


BOBBY CURTOLA (Del-Fi 4177) 
(B+) “FORTUNE TELLER” (2:41) 
[Kemo BMI — Hurdon, Hur- 
don] Is love in store? a fella asks the 
fortune teller in this well-done rock-a- 
cha romantic. Curtola is sometimes 
multi-tracked, while the combo-chorus 
provides a pleasing light-beat sound. 
Could make noise. 

(B) “JOHNNY TAKE YOUR 
TIME” (2:21) [Kemo BMI— 
Hurdon, Hurdon] Nice easy-beat affair 
about a guy whose heart tells him not 
to rush into an affair. 


ERNIE K-DOE (Minit 645) 

(B-f) “HEY, HEY, HEY” (2:40) 
[Minit BMI— Neville] K-Doe 
retains something of the sound of his 
“Mother-In-Law” hit of a few months 
ago in his new cut from Minit. That 
infectious idea is always a Top 100 
threat. 

(B) “LOVE YOU THE BEST” 

(2:04) [Minit BMI— Kador] 
Another infectious entry for the per- 
former. 


SAVERIO SARIDIS 

(Warner Bros. 5269) 

(B+) “BE ANYTHING (But Be 
Mine)” (2:30) [Shapiro, 
Bernstein ASCAP — Gordon] The po- 
liceman-turned-singer, whose first WB 
outing, “Love Is The Sweetest Thing” 
had Top 100 action, offers a similar 
straight ballad vocal on another ever- 
green. Could get similar sales. 

(B) “I WILL FOLLOW YOU” 
(2:30) [Vogue BMI — Herman] 
This is the rich romantic from the hit 
musical, “Milk & Honey.” 


THE LINCOLNS 
(Kapp Medallion 610) 

(B+) “LITTLE ZULU BOY (Hamba 
Lala)” (2:32) [Beechwood 
BMI — Crawford, Jarrard] Songsters 
do a very attractive job on the Afri- 
can-flavored folk item, somewhat re- 
sembling “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” 
Like the latter smash, this track 
could also get a Top 100 berth. 

(B+) “THE MINSTREL BOY” 
(2:12) [Bishop ASCAP — 
Ralke, Patrick] The lovely old Irish 
favorite is in sensitive vocal and in- 
strumental (a full ork) hands here. 
Can also happen. 

DON SCHROEDER (Philips 40004) 

(B-f) “MY KIND OF WOMAN” 
(1:56) [Cape Ann BMI — 
Schroeder] Distinctive-voiced new 
warbler is spotlighted in an infectious 
blues-styled manner. He’s aided with 
a fine, good-natured sound from a 
vocal crew and combo. Side is a worthy 
teen offering. 

(B+) “QUICKSAND” (2:25) [Cape 
Ann BMI — Schroeder, Hornby] 
Sad theme gets a generally intriguing 
Latinish-rock pose. Can also happen. 

HELEN SHAPIRO (Capitol 4735) 

(B-f) “TELL ME WHAT HE SAID” 
(2:44) [E. B. Marks BMI— 
Barry] England’s star lark is cur- 
rently hitting big with this item in 
England. It’s an exciting affair, with 
the performer often multi-tracked 
against a big-sounding rock-a-string 
setting. Can get Top 100 coin from 
U.S. teeners. 

(B) “I APOLOGIZE” (2:38) 
[Lorna Ltd. — Schroeder, 
Dutch, Rabin] Good teen let’s-make-up 
sound from the songstress. 


CATERINA VALENTE 
(London International 10007) 

(B) “PEPPERMINT TWIST” 
(2:10) [John Ware BMI — 
Glover, Dee] This is a colorful, Ger- 
man-lyric version of the big Joey Dee 
hit. Platter serves as a strong change- 
of-pace idea in twist spins. 

(B) “TWISTIN’ THE TWIST” 
(1:55) [BIEM GEMA AS- 
CAP — Mengozzi, Bradtke] The thrush 
is joined by her brother Sylvio in this 
twister, sung in Italian. 


MARINO MARINI 

(London International 10703) 

(B-f) “JESSICA” (2:06) [Unart 
BMI — Megulesco, Monnot] 
The popular European songster nicely 
catches the affable nature of the 
sprightly lovey-dovey from the Mau- 
rice Chevalier-starred flick of the same 
name. Opus is sung in both English 
and Italian. Charming cut. 

(B) “IT IS BETTER TO LOVE” 
(2:36) [Unart BMI — Megules- 
co, Monnot] A heavy triplet sound 
backs Marini’s warm vocal. Number 
is also from the pic. 


EARL GRANT (Decca 25560)- 

(B-f) “SWINGIN’ GENTLY” (2:40) 
[Marvelle BMI — Grant] Ver- 
satile entertainer struts his organ 
prowess here with spiritual-like 
finesse. Date is from an LP called 
“Beyond the Reef.” 

(B) “BEYOND THE REEF” 
(3:02) [Laurel ASCAP— Pit- 
man] The LP’s main-title is an un- 
hurried, jungle-type offering. 


WM. GREEN & MARTY’S ALL 
STARS (Ron-San 102) 

(B) “PRETZEL” (2:30) [Foresite 
BMI— Hillery] Slick blues- 
oriented swinger from the musicians. 
Organ and sax rockin’ highlight the 
good-sounding goings-on. Side from 
an LP, “Wm. Green at Marty’s,” is- 
sued by the Hollywood-located label. 

(B) “BLUES FOR SIX BITS” 
(2:25) [Foresite BMI — Green] 
This swinger is more in modern jazz 
vein. Also in the LP. 


MARTY BALIN (Challenge 9146) 

(B-f) “YOU MADE ME FALL” 
(2:04) [4-Star Sales BMI— 
Robertson] Good rock cheer about a 
guy who finally meets the gal that 
puts marriage on his mind. Newcomer 
Balin has a worthy teen delivery, 
sometimes heard via multi-tracking 
here. Likeable sound. 

(B) “NOBODY BUT YOU” (2:22) 
[Jat BMI — Burgess] This 
lovey-dovey is told with a good light- 
beat blues flavor. 


DANY SAVAL & TOM TRYON/ 
ANNETTE (Vista 392) 

(B) “SEVEN MOONS (of Beta- 
Lyrae)” (2:22) [Wonderland 
BMI — R&R Sherman] Offbeat novelty 
ballad sound on a ditty that’s from a 
Walt Disney flick called “Moon Pilot.” 
Stars of the pic Dany Saval, a for- 
eign performer, and Tom Tryon are 
featured. 

(B) “THAT CRAZY PLACE IN 
OUTER SPACE” (2:20) [WD- 
MCO — Camarata, White, Anthony] 
Annette is featured in this whacky 
laff item. 


JIMMY ANDERSON (Dot 16341) 

(B-f) “I WANNA BOOGIE” (2:21) 
[Jamil BMI — Anderson] 
Mostly blues-market work from An- 
derson and the musicians on the 
bouncy number. There are some novel 
guitar comments. 

(B) “ANGEL PLEASE” (2:50) 
[Jamil BMI — Anderson] Slow- 
beat funky affair. 


MARLIN GREENE (Philips 40017) 

(B-f) “THE ANGELS GOT TO- 
GETHER” (2:31) [Arch AS- 
CAP — -Schroeder] Inviting inspira- 
tional-like feel in this teen-beat stint 
by the vocalists, who relays a feeling- 
ful tale of love-found. Kids will ap- 
preciate the sentiments. 

(B) “LET THERE BE LOVE” 
(2:34) [Big Bopper BMI — • 
Greene] Snappy item with a gospel- 
flavored approach. 


FREDDIE BEACH (Summit 225) 

(B-f) “LITTLE NICODEMUS” 
(2:05) [Azalea Trail BMI — 
Beach] Tale of a twister with a sunny 
disposition is relayed with a charming 
rock-a-billy style by the songster and 
his backing. Could catch on.

Beach, Langley] Plaintive 
item gets a pleasing light-beat country 
reading. 


BONNY BROOKS (Musicor 1019) 

(B) “IN AMERICA” (2:22) [Sea- 

Lark BMI — Fishman, Trester] 
The patriotic number, with a romantic 
angle, is presented with a Latinish 
teen-market sound. Full ork & sans- 
lyric statement is interesting. 

(B) “GOING TO CHURCH ON 

SUNDAY” (2:50) [January 
BMI — Ross, Bobrick] Softer teen- 
slanted sound about going to church 
with the “boy you love.” 


VICKIE VAUGHN (Cadette 8002) 

(B) “LOVE FEVER” (2:08) [Cor- 
ette & Crazy Cajun BMI — 
Doggett, Gilley] Lark’s light-beat, 
sometimes over-dubbed vocal is as- 
sisted by an interesting shuffle-beat 
sound from the musicians. London 
handles the label. 

(C-f) “BUTTERFLIES” (2:44) 
[Corette & Crazy Cajun BMI 
— Doggett] Nice Nashville-type sound 
supports the performer’s relaxed 
warble. 


20TH CENTURY STRINGS ORCH. 

(20th Fox 303) 

(B) “IT MIGHT AS WELL BE 
SPRING” (2:25) [Williamson 
ASCAP — Rodgers, Hammerstein] The 
great song, soon to get new exposure 
in the remake of “State Fair,” gets a 
lush, triplet-included Latinish go 
from the ork under Sonny Leter’s di- 
rection. Track is from an album of 
“State Fair” songs.

SINGING” (2:52) [William-

(B-f) “DANNY BOY” (2:26) [Boo- 
sey & Hawkes ASCAP —

BOBBY GONZALES (Kapp 453) 

(B+) “GOT MY MO-JO WORK- 
ING” (2:17) [Dare BMI — 
Foster] The old R&B idea is presented 
with first-rate blues life by the per- 
former, who is supported by a well- 
done combo attack (harmonica in- 
cluded). Certain to satisfy R&B and 
teen-beat audiences. 

(B) “THAT LUCKY OLD SUN” 

(2:46) [Robbins ASCAP — 
Gillespie, Smith] A slow gospel ap- 
proach to the oldie. 

FREDDY COUNTRYMAN 
(W-E-D 23) 

(B) “THE RAVEN” (2:15) [Val- 

tone BMI — -Peyton] Guitars 
top this rapid-fire instrumental with 
a folkish feel. Generally interesting 
sound from the Los Angeles-based 
waxery. 

(B) “BACK UP AND PUSH” 

(2:35) [Valton BMI — Peyton] 
More of a rockin’ touch to this take. 


RAY BRYANT QUINTET 

(Columbia 42390) 

(B-f) “TONK” (2:50) [Brynor BMI 
Bryant] The Ray Bryant 

Quintet offers a swingin’, fast-moving 
jazz mood opus self-penned by the 
leader. The tune’s potent melodic line 
coupled with first-rate performances 
by the crew give the wax loads of po- 
tential. 

(B) “AFTER HOURS” (2:45) 

[Popular BMI — Bruce, Par- 
rish] This time out a blues-styled 

piano is highlighted for an enjoyable, 
free-flowing, listenable session. Good 
wax. 


JACI ROSS (Sar 129) 

(B+) “HARD TIMES” (2:24) [Kags 
BMI — Ross] Young (16) new- 
comer takes up an adult theme, a mar- 
riage with financial hardships. She 
displays fine blues sense on her own, 
catchy ditty. Combo provides a busy 
Latinish setting. 

(B) “HOLD ME” (2:31) [Kags 
BMI — ■ Cooke, Alexander] 
Vibes offer an attractive background 
for the lark’s pleasing romantic 
warble. 

H. B. BARNUM (RCA Victor 8014) 

(B) “OH! MY ACHIN’ BACK” 
(2:43) [Hidle & Film & TV 
BMI — Barnum, Haris] After an open- 
ing bit that resembles Chubby 
Checker’s “Let’s Twist Again Like 
We Did Last Summer,” Barnum and 
his combo-chorus companions main- 
tain a reliable-sounding rockin’ twist 
pace. A pro outing on the dance fad. 

(B) “CALL ON ME” (2:45) 
[Cedarwood BMI ■ — - Carter] 
Good-humored blueser. A band sound 
supports. 

BILLY GUY (ABC-Paramount 10320) 

(B) “HERE I AM” (2:25) [Pea- 
nut BMI — Guy] Blues per- 
former is exciting as he belts out the 
ditty. His accompaniment is a fine 
band-styled choo-choo romp. 

(B) “AS QUIET AS IT’S KEPT” 
(2:30) [Prigan BMI— Guy] 
Easy bounce quality to this basic 
blueser. 


FULLER BROS. (Challenge 9145) 

(B) “BALLAD OF THE MID- 

NIGHT SPECIAL” (2:29) 
[4-Star Sales BMI — Johnson] Old 
folk number is done with a fine au- 
thentic-sounding approach by the 
vocalists, who are backed by a speedy 
combo sound, including a harmonica. 
A commercial folk outing. 

(B) “GALLOW TREE” (2:51) [4- 

Star Sales BMI — Best, Bur- 

gess] Another folk sound, this time 
with an old-west theme.

LIGHTIN’ HOPKINS (Candid 603) 

(B-f) “MISTER CHARLIE, PART * 
TWO” (2:47) [Sanga BMI— 
Hopkins] Vet blues belter Lightin’ 
Hopkins displays his professional 
vocal talents on this self -penned, folk- 
flavored, slow-paced opus. Wax is the 
first single for the Cadence affiliate 
and is culled from the chanter’s album. *" 
Side should garner plenty of airplay. 

(B) “MISTER CHARLIE, PART 
ONE” (2:46) [Sanga BMI— 
Hopkins] This side’s a recitation 
which acts as an introduction to part 
two. 

NESTOR LA BONTE (Arvee 5053) ^ 

(B+) “TWISTIN’ CRICKET” 

(1:50) [Sprite BMI — La- •* 
Bonte] The dance craze is represented 
with a nifty, organ-led rock instru- 
mental sound. Theme is catchy. A cut 
that could pick-up some action. A , 

(B) “JEANNETTE” (2:33) 
[Sprite BMI — LaBonte] Pret- 
ty sentimental gets a listenable rock 
sound from the organ. ■» 

CLAIRETTE CLEMENTINO 

(Encore 1204) 

(B) “TEENAGE FAIR” (2:35) 
[Suto BMI — Oliver, Ratner] 
Inviting tale of love-found at a teen- ^ 
age Fair — and the lark is speaking of 
a real one that takes place from April 
13-22 at Pacific Ocean Park in Santa 
Monica, Calif. 

(B) “I CAN’T BELIEVE (That 
You’re In Love With Me)” 
(2:07) [Mills ASCAP— McHugh, Gas- 
kill] Good twistin’ look at the stand- 
by ^ 

R. DEAN TAYLOR (Mala 444) * 

(B+) “I’LL REMEMBER” (2:24) 

[Republic & Aim BMI — Tay- ^ 
lor] There could be a “left-field” hit 
in the deck’s grooves. Romantic theme 
is carried by a catchy tune (somewhat 
like “Catch a Falling Star”), pre- 
sented with a grow-on-you rock-a- 
billy sound by Taylor and the combo- > 
femme chorus. Might step out. 

(B) “IT’S A LONG WAY TO ST. 

LOUIS” (2:07) [Republic & 

Aim BMI — Taylor] Speedy rock-a- 
billy doings here. 

GENE STRIDEL (Verve 10247) > , 

(B-f) “LET HER GO” (2:38) 

[Beechwood BMI — Wolfe, J 
Davis] This is new adaptation of “St. 
James Infirmary” and it’s an interest- 
ing, busy hard-beat blues approach. 
Stridel’s strong delivery is backed by 
a colorful sound, including organ 
work. v 

(B-f) “ONE MORE FOOL AND 

ONE MORE BROKEN I 
HEART” (2:16) [Beechwood BMI — 
Wolfe, Ross] This country-styled v 

plaintive, has what it takes to make 
a chart go-round. Watch ’em both.

Burl I ves 



Burl Ives’ fast-rising “Funny Way 
Of Laughin’ ” (#66 on this week’s Top 
100) ranks as potent follow-up to his 
recent hit of “Little Bitty Tear.” The 
chanter who is descended from Illi- 
nois farmers, river-boat gamblers and 
preachers, answers to the full name of 
Burl Icle Ivanhoe Ives, which rolls as 
rhythmically as the guitar accompani- 
ment of his troubador’s ballads. 

In the area of grass roots folk 
music, where there has been little 
world-wide acceptance, he has equaled 
and surpassed the acclaim usually re- 
served for practitioners of more 
sophisticated forms of music. Draw- 
ing for repertoire upon his deep-south 
background and the experiences of a 
grandmother who crossed the nation 
in a covered wagon. He sings sea 
chanties with the same high standards 
that belong to Rodgers and Hart. In- 
terestingly enough, his first break was 
in the Rodgers and Hart Broadway 
classic, “The Boys From Syracuse.” 
Then followed a long list of stage and 
and flick credits. 

In addition, after years of being 
known almost exclusively as a musical 
comedy star, he daringly accepted a 
dramatic role in the production of 
Tennessee Williams’ “Cat On A Hot 
Tin Roof.” His portrayal of the rough- 
hewn Big Daddy remains a classic in 
the history of Broadway theatre. 


Ernie Maresca 



Ernie Maresca, who is currently hit- 
ting with “Shout, Shout (Knock Your- 
self Out),” began his musical career 
as a song writer. The twenty-two year 
old chanter was born August 21, 1939 
in the Bronx and attended Bronx Vo- 
cational High School and the New 
York School of Printing. 

Ernie has done A & R work with 
such groups as the Desires, the Re- 
gents, and the Tremonts. He was the 
moving power behind the organiza- 
tion of the Regents and their subse- 
quent hit recordings of “Barbara 
Ann” and “Runaround.” His list of 
compositions includes such biggies as 
“Runaround Sue” and “The Wan- 
derer” by Dion. 

The multi-talented Maresca has 
written two tunes for the flick, “Twist 
Around The Clock,” starring Chubby 
Checker, Dion, and the Marcels. He 
is now under an exclusive recording 
contract to Seville Records.

WYGO-Corbin, Kentucky is a new 
swingin’ 5,000-watter in the bluegrass 
state. The station went on the air 
Thanksgiving Day, 1961 with air per- 
sonalities Everett Lawson, Cal Smith, 
Don Mills and Walt Powell doing daily 
shows. Powell is also general manager 
of the outlet. 

WEBR-Buffalo, the first “Sing- 
along” station is dropping that format 
on April 2nd, and adopting the “Sound 
Of The City” identification, a varia- 
tion of the theme used by KSFC-San 
Francisco. 

Hal Jackson, spinner on WWRL- 
New York, is currently dickering for 
a TV show. The deejay occupies the 
6-9AM stanza as well as the 2-3PM 
niche over the Gotham station. 

KDKA-Pittsburgh has presented a 
painting of the first radio broadcast 
to the Pittsburgh Press Club. The sta- 
tion commissioned John Johns, artist 
for the Pittsburgh Press, to do the 
painting — a scene of KDKA’s cover- 
age of the Harding-Cox election re- 
turns on November 2, 1920. Shown are 
Leo Rosenberg, announcer; William 
Thomas, engineer; and R. S. McClel-

the results from the Pittsburgh Post.

at the studios doing his daily record 
shows after two lengthy hospitaliza-

WLOL-Minneapolis has been re- 
sponsible for initiating in the twin 
cities metropolitan area Sigalert, an 
alerting system designed to keep radio 
listeners informed of hazardous or t 
emergency conditions, as well as im- 
pending disasters, of community-wide 
importance. Proven highly effective in 
other parts of the country for many 
years, Sigalert is set up electronically 
so that WLOL maintains a direct 
radio link with police, fire, sheriff, 
civil defense, and other official agen- 
cies in the greater twin cities area. * 
Sigalert messages originate from an 
official “clearing-house,” so that only 
bulletins of the utmost importance 
are released to WLOL’s receiver. Fol- 
lowing such release, they receive in- 
stantaneous rebroadcast (after being 
automatically tape-recorded). The 
station hopes that, eventually, all 
radio stations in the area will be part 
of the Sigalert system. 

WCUE-Akron will stage a seven- 
hour salute to Frank Sinatra Sunday, 
April 8. On that day the station will > 
devote the entire afternoon’s pro- 
gramming to the music of Sinatra, 
Tommy Dorsey, Billy May, Nelson 
Riddle and other arrangers and con- 
ductors who have been associated with * 
the singer during his career. The pub- 
lic is invited to share in the selection 
of the music to be heard on WCUE’s 
“Sinatra Spectacular.” Listeners are % 
asked to address post cards to the 
station listing three songs they would 
like to hear Sinatra sing during the 
special. Starting at 12:00 Noon, 
WCUE will select one card at random ' 
every thirty minutes and award the 
sender a copy of Sinatra’s latest long- 
play album. The cards will all be used 
to aid the station in programming the t 
music for the “Sinatra Spectacular.” 

The story of the singer’s career wfill 
be related by program hosts Rick 
Reighard and Bob Ancel during the 
course of the seven-hour special. 

In an unusual theatrical move, 
KHJ-Los Angeles jockey Lucky Pierre

view with Angie Dickinson, star of 
United Artists’ “Jessica,” at a Beverly

during a “sneak preview,” supposed 
to be hush-hush in Hollywood circles. 
Pierre featured the interview on two 
consecutive broadcasts.

ALBUM REVIEWS 






POPULAR PICKS OF THE WEEK 


“NO STRINGS’— Original Cast— Capitol 1695 
Although “No Strings” has many “firsts,” includ- 
ing Richard Rodgers’ excellent first try as the 
lyricist of a full Broadway score, that old Rodgers 
knack for refreshing’ melody is its top triumph. 
The sans-strings ork idea comes across most ef- 
fectively in the swinging, nitery-type numbers 
for Diahann Carroll, who achieves star standing 
with her performances. LP looks like one of the 
stronger original-cast sellers of the season. 


“STATE FAIR” — Original Soundtrack — Dot 

The remake of “State Fair” is loaded with young 
starpower (Pat Boone, Bobby Darin, Ann-Mar- 
gret and Pamela Tiffin) and, of course, wonder- 
ful songs (e.g. “It Might As Well Be Spring,” 
“It’s A Grand Night For Singing,” “That’s For 
Me”). In addition to the original songs he wrote 
with Oscar Hammerstein, Richard Rodgers 
has written (both music and words) five more 
charming pieces (a delightful song, “It’s The 
Little Things In Texas,” replaces “All I Owe I 
Owe Ioway” because the new version changes the 
Fair site from Iowa to Texas). Besides the fine 
contributions by the youngsters, there are deli- 
cious vocals by Alice Faye and Tom Ewell. Hot 
package. 

“STRANGE ENCHANTMENT”— Vic Damone— 
Capitol ST 1691 

Vic Damone comes up with a powerful follow-up 
LP to his current chart-riding disk of “Linger A 
While” with this beautifully essayed group of a 
dozen tropical-flavored tunes. The songster’s ro- 
mantic, compelling effortless delivery carries him 
in good stead as he offers extremely listenable 
renditions of “Poinciana,” “Beyond The Reef” and 
“Ebb Tide.” An added plus here are the strikingly 
fresh arrangements of Billy May. Album should 
step out fast in the sales department. 

“GUYS & DOLLS”— The Kirby Stone Four— 
Columbia CL 1714 

Somehow, “Guys & Dolls,” with one of the great 
scores of all-time, is a stranger to the LP catalog, 
save for Decca’s original-cast issue. This neglect 
is partially rectified in an engaging manner by 
the breezy songsters, who are brightly assisted by 
a femme chorus and a swingin’ band. The per- 
formances of 12 songs from the show (including 
one from the movie version) are introduced by 
a “Libretto-ture,” a medley of the songs per- 
formed with new lyrics (by Stone) that tell the 
action of the story. Many tracks here should 
figure in heavy airplay. 

“STARS IN OUR EYES”— Four Freshmen— 
Capitol ST 1682 

The Four Freshmen, whose previous wax efforts 
have made them stars in their own right, offer 
a tasty musical tribute to a dozen other vocal 
groups who have achieved stardom during the 
past couple of decades on this top-notch Capitol 
disk. The boys kick things off with the Four 
Coins’ “Shangri-La” and offer such diverse selec- 
tions as the Kingston Trio’s “Tom Dooley” and 
the Andrews’ “In Apple Blossom Time.” The four- 
some does not attempt to imitate the original ar- 
rangements of the tunes. Instead they give each 
song their distinctive sales-laden vocal stylings. 
LP seems a sure chart item.

“TUFF-SAX”— Ace Cannon— Hi HL 12007 

Ace Cannon cashes in on the success of his cur- 
rent self-penned chart-riding item of “Tuff” to 
tag this premiere album for Hi. Cannon’s alto sax 
treatments are strikingly delicate, vivid and 
tantalizing as he reads eleven other raunchy blues- 
styled sturdies and newies. Some first-rate ex- 
amples of the Cannon brand of musical magic are 
“Trouble In Mind,” “Basin Street Blues” and his 
own “Careless Love.” Disk has enough built-in 
success ingredients to score heavily in the coin 
department. 


“GO ON HOME” — Patti Page — Mercury SR 60689 
Patti Page dishes up her second bundle of country 
winners with her expected poise and sales-laden 
style. The lark has tagged this package after her 
recent biggie “Go On Home,” and renders eleven 
other country tunes on this extremely listenable 
package from Mercury. Some best examples of 
her lyrical delivery are “Walk On By,” “I Fall To 
Pieces” and her recently-released single effort 
“You Don’t Know Me.” Dish should pull plenty of 
loot.

“ BIG’ TINY LITTLE IN PERSON”— Coral— 

CRL 57390 . jr> ! 

Tiny Little has proven himself via his successful 
album entries in the past, and this new outing re- 
corded live at the Marineland Of The Pacific * 
should go a similar success route. The 88er’s 
approach to ragtime is high-spirited with plenty j 
of down-to-earth refreshing hand-clapping sounds. . 

The Little group, featuring Josephine Ray as the y 
star vocalist, turns in lively, enjoyable renditions 
of “When You’re Smiling,” “The Honeydripper” 
and “Georgia On My Mind.” All the pianist’s fans ' 
should really dig this entertaining package. * 

“I’M THE GREATEST COMEDIAN IN THE 
WORLD ONLY NOBODY KNOWS IT YET”— 

Jackie Mason — Verve V 15033 

Here’s a yock-filled album which showcases the A 
rapid-fire delivery of Jackie Mason. This the 
laughman’s first disk and his engaging style of \ 
one ludicrous gag after another should win him » 

many admirers. He touches on such diverse sub- M 
jects as love, self defense, income tax, Frank 
Sinatra, and over-population with completely 
fresh and funny monologs. If this album is any 
indication of the comic’s potential he should 
quickly develop into a star attraction. M 


“HELLO DERE!”— Marty Allen, Steve Rossi— 
ABC-Paramount ABC 2270 

For zany comedy at its best Marty Allen and 
Steve Rossi easily take top honors over today’s 
crop of new laughmen and this ABC-Paramount 
album cut live at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas 
shows the boys to be the best comedy twosome 
since Martin and Lewis. The laughs come fast 
and furiously as the team attack everything from 
politics to Columbus. Some extremely funny bits 
are “Famous People In The News” and “The 
Man On The Moon.” Airplay is restricted because 
much of the material is blue, but all yock-lovers 
should come in force for the album. 



“FROM THE SECOND CITY”— Original Cast- 
Mercury OCS 6203 

The Windy City troup of “From The Second City” 
formed a firm beachhead in Gotham with their 
hilarious, satirical bits, routines and burlesques 
before the show closed on Broadway and re- 
opened in Greenwich Village. This disk contains 
four extremely funny bits from the show includ- 
ing a satire on the trials of bringing football to 
the U. of Chicago, the problems of a blind date 
and two riotous interviews. Although much of the 
humor is visual, the set offers a tasty slice of 
new-wave comedy. Many laughs to be had here.

“MUSIC FROM THE RICHARD RODGERS 
BROADWAY HIT ‘NO STRINGS’ ’’—Ralph 
Burns — Epic LN 3840 

Ralph Burns has come up with an interesting in- 
strumental treatment of the Richard Rodgers 
Broadway smash. The original score is rendered 
literally without strings, only by woodwinds, brass 
and percussion to prove the show’s title. Orkster 
Burns who is the original arranger for the show, 
gives the music his own professional touch with 
the backing of full ork, with strings. The effect is 
entirely pleasing as the band reads “The Sweetest 
Sounds,” “Love Makes The World Go” and “No 
Strings.” Superior listening enjoyment through- 
out. 


“PERCOLATOR TWIST AND OTHER TWIST 
HITS”— Earl Palmer— Liberty LST 7227 

Here’s an attractive group of current hits ren- 
dered with a danceable twist beat by drummer 
Earl Palmer. Most of the items here are extremely 
fast-moving and the Palmer treatments give them 
an extra added zest-filled flavor. A chorus pro- 
vides backing on some of the band. Teens should 
find terpsichorean delights in “Twistin’ The Night 
Away,” “Dear Lady Twist” and “Hit The Road 
Jack.” Plenty of sales power here. 


“STATE FAIR” — 20th Century Strings Orchestra 
—20th Fox 3057 

20th Fox has come-up with the first LP of the 
score to the new version of “State Fair” outside 
of Dot’s soundtrack offering. Under Sonny Les- 
ter’s direction, the string-filled ork performs the 
entire score, including the five newcomers by 
Richard Rodgers, in a variety of rhythms and 
tempos, ranging from soft triplets to jazz. Tracks 
should receive lots of station exposure; the major 
status of the pic itself should lend a strong sales 
hand, too.

ALBUM REVIEWS 








“I’M ALWAYS CHASING RAINBOWS”— Bill 
Cunningham — Chorea AS3 

Here’s a delightful album of studies profession- 
ally essayed by newcomer Bill Cunningham. The 
songster’s voice is tender and rich with superior 
range and pitch. Eight of the tunes here were 
orchestrated and conducted by Harry Betts and 
the chanter turns in superior performances on 
“It’s Too Late” and “I Dream Too Much.” Four 
selections, including an impressive rendition of 
the title tune, were orchestrated by Dick Hazzard. 
LP should win the chanter a flock of fans. 


“BIG BAND THEMES”— Ralph Marterie— United 
Artists UAS 6177 

A lush trumpet and a host of vibrant strings com- 
bine to play an exceptionally fine assortment of 
themes of the popular big bands of the past few 
decades. Marterie has enriched these sturdies with 
fresh, new arrangements which make for first- 
rate listening or dancing pleasure. The themes of 
Miller, Ellington, the Dorseys, and Les Brown are 
rejuvenated by the orkster as the band reads such 
favorites as “Serenade In Blue,” “Mood Indigo,” 
and “You Made Me Love You.” 


“HITS OF THE HOPS”— Warner Brothers— 
WS1448 

In this collection of past hits, Warner Brothers 
has come up with a package designed especially 
for the teen-agers. All of the tunes have had a 
successful sales history and this collective reissue 
should bring out the youngsters in droves. Start- 
ing off with the Everly Brothers “Cathy’s Clown,” 
LP continues with such favorites as “Tequila” by 
the Champs, “Heart and Soul” by Jan and Dean, 
and “77 Sunset Strip” by Don Ralke. Eight other 
tracks by popular artists singing their hits make 
this an attractive offering. 


“TWIST GOES LATIN”— Perez Prado— RCA 
Victor LPM-2524 

Composer-conductor-arranger Perez Prado has 
put together a collection of originals and ever- 
greens and arranged them for dancing — the twist. 
The orkster launches the set with the “Ti-Pi-Tin- 
Twist,” and includes his current click single “Pa- 
tricia-Twist.” Other good bands here are “Cherry 
Pink And Apple Blossom White-Twist” and “La 
Raspa-Twist.” Dish could score with the twistin’ 
set. 


“NEW TWISTS ON OLD FAVORITES”— Sammy 
Kaye — Decca DL74247 

Sammy Kaye does his bit to add to the current 
deluge of twist music with a package of oldies 
with novelty arrangements. The swing and sway 
style is retained by the brass and reeds but the 
rhythm section goes all out for the twist beat. 
Orkster has dug up a dozen evergreens geared for 
twisting and kicks off the set with “Alexander’s 
Ragtime Band.” “Darktown Strutter’s Ball,” 
“Who’s Sorry Now,” and “After You’ve Gone” 
are included in the session. LP should pull coin 
with twisters and Kaye followers. 


“ODETTA AT TOWN HALL”— Vanguard VSD- 
2109 

In this collection of folk tunes Odetta runs the 
gamut from soul searching spirituals to spritely 
tales of nonsense and adventure. Although thrush 
is not in her best voice on this session, there is 
much pleasurable listening as she reads “Let Me 
Ride,” “Freedom Trilogy,” and the popular “He’s 
Got The Whole World In His Hands.” All sixteen 
tracks are done well and should provide interest 
for all the lark’s admirers. 


“SING ALONG IN LITHUANIAN”— Ruta Folk 
Choir — Request RLP 8049 

The beautiful, feelingful voices of the Ruta Folk 
Choir are teamed up with the Gene Mitchko ork 
for this interesting session of professionally- 
essayed favorite Lithuanian folk items. This off- 
beat Request package is extremely listenable even 
if you don’t understand a word of Lithuanian. For 
those who can sing-along, the diskery has in- 
cluded printed lyrics. An eye-catching cover gives 
the album added display value. 


st eke* « • . • 


“SALOME” — Various Artists — London OS A 1218 j 
London adds many laurels to their operatic cata- | 
log with this first-rate two-disk set of Strauss’ t 
“Salome.” The package boasts the talents of 
Brigit Nelson (in the title role), Eberhard Wach- 
ter, Gerhard Stolze and Georg Hoffman conduct- I 
ing the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The sing- i v 
ers are in fine form and Solti has the ork in per- | 
feet control at all times. Set ranks as one of the | 
best versions of “Salome” to be cut in quite a 
while. 


BRAHMS: Symphony Number 1 In C Minor, Op. , 
68; William Steinberg conducting the Pittsburgh Lf 
Symphony Orchestra — Command CC 11011SD 
From the impressive thirty-seven measure in- 
troduction to the similar sounding chorale-like I 
triumphant finale William Steinberg offers proof 
positive of top-flight interpretive skills. The con- , 
ductor recently cut a superb version of the First 
Symphony and this magnificent wax attests to his 
firm understanding of Brahms. The Pittsburgh 
Symphony ork shines as they render the sym- 
phony under the professional baton of the maes- 
tro. A superior classical disk.

“THE GOLDEN YEARS”— Billie Holiday— Co- 
lumbia C3L 21 

Jazzophiles should come out in droves for this 
magnificient three-disk package which spotlights 
the late Billie Holiday rendering some of her most 
popular and widely-acclaimed songs. The instru- 
mental backing boasts the best jazz including 
Gene Krupa, Charlie Shavers, Jack Teagarden, 
Teddy Wilson, and Count Basie. The lark’s im- 
pressive feelinful voice is superbly showcased on 
“These Foolish Things,” “A Fine Romance” and 
“I Can’t Get Started.” A picture-filled booklet 
with notes by jazz critic Ralph Gleason is an 
added plus. A quality session. 


ON OLD FAVORITES 

tkmiYKi ' mm™ 


“SOUL PIONEERS” — Milt Jackson — Prestige 
7224 

The Milt Jackson Quartet with Jackson on vibra- 
harp, Horace Silver on piano, Percy Heath on 
bass and Connie Kay on drums have come up with 
a first-class disk of assertive, swinging jazz on 
this Prestige set. Although the session was cut 
six years ago, the sounds are strictly new-wave 
as the group go through their paces with style 
and superlative musicanship. Some best tracks 
are “My Funny Valentine,” “The Nearness Of 
You” and “ Should Care.” Plenty of Sales power 
here. 


“GLOOMY SUNDAY AND OTHER BRIGHT i 
MOMENTS”— Bob Brookmeyer— Verve V 8455 I 
Bob Brookmeyer’s growth as a mature jazz artist i A 
is artfully showcased on this refreshing, rhythmic | 
session of standards and newies from Verve. For 
the first side of the album Brookmeyer calls on 
the talents of such ace arrangers as Ralph Burns, 1 
A1 Cohn, Gary McFarland and Eddie Sauter. The l 
ork shines as they read a pungent, romantic i 
Sauter-arranged version of “Gloomy Sunday” i* 
with kudos going to Phil Woods as alto soloist. ( 
The second half of the set is all Brookemeyer. 
Here, he turns arranger and the results are en- 
tirely pleasing. Some top-draw bands are an I > 
original piece called “Ho Hum” and imaginative l

From White House Tour

lication by the Sam Fox Publishing

ance by the National Symphony Or- 
chestra in Washington, D.C. under

Stuart-i Feted By Congress 



WASHINGTON— Enzo Stuarti re- 
cently received one of the most un- 
usual tributes ever bestowed on an 
entertainer when he was guest of 
honor at a special breakfast held in 
the Speakers Dining Room of the 
Capitol by Congressman Victor An- 
fuso of Brooklyn. More than twenty 
Senators and Congressmen, including 
John W. McCoi'mack, Speaker of the 
House, and Carl Albert, Majority 
Leader of the House were present. All 
this came about when Congressman 
Anfuso saw Stuarti perform at the 
Shoreham Hotel in Washington. An- 
fuso was so impressed with the song- 
ster’s voice that he went backstage to 
meet him. When he learned that 
Stuarti had fled his native Italy at the 
age of thirteen to escape Fascist 
tyranny, he decided to hold the break- 
fast as a tribute to an immigrant boy 
who made good in America. Shown 
(left to right) are Carl Albert, the 
chanter, Victor Anfuso and John Mc- 
Cormack.

Guy Mitchell Ends 
Career At Columbia 

NEW YORK— Guy Mitchell has left 
the Columbia label after a long-stay. 
The songster’s five year pact ended 
last week. No decision has been made 
by Mitchell and his manager, Eddie 
Joy, as to future recording affiliation, 
but being weighed is the setting up 
an independent disk production com- 
pany by the performer. During his 
more than 10 year career with Co- 
lumbia, Mitchell had such hits as “My 
Heart Cries for You,” “Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania,” “The Roving Kind,” 
“My Truly, Truly Fair,” “Sparrow In 
the Treetop,” “Singing the Blues” and 
“Heartaches By the Number.”

Music Shows Planned 
For Chi Fair 

CHICAGO — A daily production, 
“World of Music,” has been planned 
for Chicago’s World’s Fair of Music 
& Sound to be held at the McCormick 
Palace Aug. 31-Sept. 9. 

According to Aaron D. Cushman, 
Fair president, negotiations are cur- 
rently underway with a number of 
Broadway composers and librettists to 
jointly create original scores for the 
production. Pacts are also being nego- 
tiated for top talent. 

It was also announced that Zenith 
Radio Corp. would display its 1963 
line of radio, FM stereo and TV prod- 
ucts at the event. 

Mayor Richard J. Daley has pro- 
claimed Music & Sound Week to co- 
incide with the Fair. 


"Jessica" Screenings 
For Dealers, Deejays 

NEW YORK — United Artists Pic- 
tures is offering special screenings 
of “Jessica,” starring Maurice Cheva- 
lier and Angie Dickinson, across the 
country primarily to promote disk re- 
leases of the pic’s music. 

The showings are a joint effort of 
the film company and its subsidiary, 
United Artists Records, which has the 
soundtrack LP and two singles: 
Chevalier’s singing of the title tune 
and “The Vespa Song” and Nick 
Perito’s instrumental reading of the 
main-title. In addition, European 
singer Marino Marini has “Jessica” 
and “It Is Better To Love” on a new 
London International single. 

Before the romantic comedy’s world 
premiere last week (28), at the Fine 
Arts Theatre in Los Angeles, local 
dealers in that city were invited to a 
special screening, following which the 
soundtrack album was played. Orders 
were then taken in the screening room 
for records as well as for display ma- 
terial on exhibit. 

A week before “Jessica” opened in 
LA, deejays and record librarians 
were invited to see the film. 

Previously, another screening was 
held for A&R executives of other disk 
firms.

“Strings” Break 



NEW YORK — Peter Matz (left), who provided the musical direction and 
dance arrangements for the new Richard Rodgers hit musical, “No Strings,” 
recently enjoyed a moment of between- takes relaxation with the stars of the 
show, Diahann Carroll and Richard Kiley. The occasion was Capitol’s record- 
ing of the original Broadway cast album at Gotham’s Manhattan Center. 


Too Early For Results 
Of N.Y. Format Changes 


NEW YORK — The consensus of opin- 
ion around town concerning the 
switches in programming formats at 
WINS and WHN (formerly WMGM) 
is that it’s much to early to determine 
effects on listenership and advertis- 
ing. 

WINS’ Ted Steele, declaring that 
there has been no appreciable indica- 
tion in the pick up or drop off of 
sponsor participation or share of 
audience since the outlet began its 
‘soft’ music schedule, did, however, 
note a slight decline in the share of 
teen audience plus a slight increase 
in adult listenership. 

He also stated that there was ab- 
solutely no truth to the rumor that 
the station would switch back to a 
rock and roll format, adding that a 
contest was underway to determine 
the best definition of the teen music. 

WHN’s Rick Sklar commented that 
it had been only 30 days since the sta- 
tion made the switch and hardly any 
projections could be made in such a 



short time span, although there has 
been an increase in adult mail pull. 

WNEW’s Mark Olds, and WMCA’s 
Mike Lawrence, contacted to deter- 
mine the effect on their stations by 
the aforementioned switches, were in 
complete agreement with the far-too- 
soon comments of Steele and Sklar. 

Frank Stitzer, of the Hooper rating 
service, stated that, although there 
seemed to be an extremely slight 
dropoff in the share of WINS and 
WHN’s total audience in the January- 
February to February-March periods, 
it was too difficult to read anything 
into the early figures. Actual figures 
are not available at this time since 
Hooper conducts its survey on a 2- 
month basis. 


CTJ Pacts "Firehouse" 
For 3 More Years 

LOS ANGELES — The Firehouse 
Five Plus Two, the jazz group com- 
posed of Walt Disney studio artists, 
writers and directors, have added, via 
a new pact, three more years to its 
13-year association with Good Time 
Jazz Records. Group, originated in 
1948, is under the leadership of trom- 
bonist Ward Kimball. Kimball has es- 
timated that the popular group has 
had to turn down well over a $1 mil- 
lion worth of engagements because of 
the members’ regular jobs at the Dis- 
ney studio. They have found time, 
however, to make many nitery, radio 
and TV appearances.

Columbia LP’s To 

NEW YORK — Columbia Records is 
readying its extensive disk salute to 
composer Igor Stravinsky’s 80th 
birthday this June. 

In May, the label plans to issue 6 
LP’s of Stravinsky works, four of 
them conducted by the composer him- 
self. 

In addition, sessions were set for 
last weekend in Hollywood in which 
Stravinsky would conduct the Colum- 
bia Symphony Orchestra in perform- 
ances of his new ballet, “The Flood” 
and “Dumbarton Oaks Concerto.” 

“The Flood,” a religious ballet, was 
commissioned by the Columbia Broad- 
casting Company, the label’s parent 
company, and will be televised June 
14 with choreography by George Bal- 
lanchine. 

Columbia plans to release the LP 
containing “The Flood,” which in- 
cludes actor Laurence Harvey as the 
narrator and Elsa Lancaster as 
Noah’s wife, to coincide with the tele- 
cast. 

On April 28, Stravinsky will con- 
duct the CBS Symphony in Toronto, 
Canada, in the Western Hemisphere 
premiere of another major religious 
work, “A Sermon, A Narrative & A 
Prayer.” The performance, proceeds 
of which will be donated to the Dag 
Hammarskjold Memorial Fund, is to 
be broadcast by the Canadian Broad- 
casting Company. Following the 
broadcast, Stravinsky will record the 
work in Toronto. 

Columbia also recently cut the per- 
formance of Stravinsky’s “Oedipus 
Rex,” following three concerts with 
the Washington Opera Society in 
Washington, D.C. On Jan. 18, the 
night before the first performance, 
the composer was honored by Presi- 
dent and Mrs. John F. Kennedy at a 
White House dinner. 


Al Jarvis To Veep 
Post At D.R.A. Label 

HOLLYWOOD — Al Jarvis, the long- 
time deejay, has joined D.R.A. Rec- 
ords as a veep, according to Irving

Int’l Record Men’s Club 
Hears Volk of Polydor 


NEW YORK — More than 75 people at- 
tended the International Record 
Men’s Club luncheon held last week at 
the Warwick Hotel in New York and 
heard an interesting and informative 
talk from Hans Volk of Deutsche 
Gramaphone, Germany, who brought 
the audience up to date on the record 
scene in Germany and the German 
speaking countries as well as Deut- 
sche Gramaphone’s role in this mar- 
ket. 

Volk is an executive of Deutsche 
Gramaphone’s Polydor International 
Division and is in charge of American 
product released on the Polydor label. 
He has been with the firm for ten 
years and is also an A & R exec of the 
company. 

Volk opened his talk with a short 
history of the DG operation which, 
with 60 years under its belt, is the 
oldest Continental record company. 
Classical product is released under 
the DG banner and pop material un- 
der Polydor. He estimated that DG 
has a 35-40% share of the German 
market with EMI (Electrola) second 
with 25%; British Decca’s (Teldec) 
with 20-25%; and Philips (which he 
said had made great strides in recent 
years) 10-15%. All other companies, 
Volk said, make up the remaining 5- 
8%. In referring to the “German mar- 
ket” Volk included Austria and the 
German speaking population of 
Switzerland. 

Volk said that radio and TV pro- 
motion were impossible because of 
the State's control of all radio and 
the one TV outlet. He pointed to the 
importance of Radio Luxembourg, a 
commercial station which sells pro- 
gramming time and which broadcasts 
into the industrial heart of Germany. 

The record business in 1961 in Ger- 
many was a shade better than busi- 
ness in 1960. Albums are gaining in 
Germany although they have a long 
way to go before they can even ap- 
proach the important role they play 
in America. 

Counting EP’s as 2 units, 10" LP’s 
(still important in Germany) as 4 
units and 12" LP’s as 6 units, Volk 
said that in 1960 Germany produced 
117,000,000 units and in 1961, 118,000,- 
000 units, an increase of less than 1%. 

To give the audience an idea of the 
potential of the market, Volk pointed 
to two important artists affiliated with 
Polydor — Connie Francis and the Ger- 
man star Freddy. Freddy has had 14 
singles released in Germany which 
have a total sale of 10,800,000. In 
1956 Freddy’s first record release was 
“Memories Are Made Of This” which 
sold in excess of 2% million. His “La 
Paloma” LP sold over 125,000 copies. 
However, this is ar from average, 
since Polydor’s second all time best 
selling LP reached an 18,000 figure. 
Connie Francis, who recorded a Ger- 
man version of “Everybody’s Some- 
body’s Fool” sold over 700,000 pieces 
of the disk. She is by far Germany’s 
best selling female vocalist. Her Ger- 
man singles have sold over 2% mil- 
lion units for Polydor. Volk said that 
the language barrier makes it nec- 
essary for artists to record vocals in 
German for a large sale in Germany. 
Polydor is now recording Brenda Lee 


in German and will issue her first 
German language single shortly. 

Stereo doesn’t mean a thing in Ger- 
many, Volk said. Many people have 
added Hi-Fi phonos in Germany since 
the war and there seems to be little 
desire to replace the recently pur- 
chased equipment with stereo product. 
However, Volk did point to the sale 
of Command product, special sound 
product, which does sell between five 
and ten thousand pieces of certain 
LP’s. Classical stereo is not accepted. 

In concluding, Volk pointed to a 
situation which he considered detri- 
mental to American product in Ger- 
many. Most American firms give a 
line to a German company for only 
the German market. Since the market 
can only be expected to absorb 500 
pieces of an LP title, it becomes too 
costly to issue a broad selection of LP 
titles from the American label, so 
only four or five cherries are chosen 
from the catalog. However, he said, if 
we and other German labels were 
given the entire Common Market 
rights to an American label, then the 
potential market would be much 
greater and we could afford to take a 
chance with a great many more al- 
bums. Under the present situation, 
with each country being given dis- 
tribution for only its market, none of 
the companies in the various countries 
of the common market can afford to 
issue non-cream albums. 

Walt Hofer emceed the luncheon and 
announced that the International Rec- 
ord Men’s Club was in the black — it 
now has assets totaling $2.42. Hofer 
also announced that a performing 
rights society will go into operation 
in the Phillipines in May. He called 
attention to a 40% decrease in boot- 
legging in Formosa because many 
companies were now making distribu- 
tion agreements with smaller areas 
such as Maylaya, Hong Kong, etc., 
rather than with Formosa for all sur- 
rounding territories. 


Texas Table Talk 



DALLAS — George Maharis who is

haris is the co-star of the “Route 66”

Starday "Caravan" Promo 

MADISON, TENN.— Starday Records 
second annual “Starday Caravan of 
Country Music Sale” is now under- 
way. 

Under the plan, dealers receive a 
15% discount on all LP’s and EP’s. 
They can receive, at no charge, a 
counter display unit, window streamer 
and new catalogs. 

A larger, color display unit, at 50^ 
each, is available to selected dealers 
via a Starday idea to add more pres- 
tige to country music purchases. 
Dealers who receive the unit will be 
told that they have been selected as 
“The Country Music Dealer” for the 
area. Distributor is to make available 
the units to one dealer in cities of 
50,000 or less, to two dealers in cities 
of 50-100,000, and to “carefully se- 
lected” dealers in larger cities.

Roger Threlfall, director and joint general manager of Pye Records for the 
last five years, has now joined Planned Holdings Ltd., a subsidiary of Asso- 
ciated Television which operates the Muzak background music franchise in the > 
U.K. He will, however, retain his seat on the board of Pye Records. Threlfall’s 
departure means that Louis Benjamin, who with Threlfall was joint general 
manager, now assumes full responsibility and becomes sole general manager 
of Pye Records Ltd. 

Following an agreement between Philips Phonographische Industries and 
Interdisc, distribution of Interdisc’s Amei'ican lines will, in future, be handled 
by Philips. In Britain future releases will be made on the Fontana label, and 
will include disks by such artists as Thelonious Monk, Cannonball Adderley, 
Milt Jackson, Wes Montgomery and Charlie Byrd. The labels affected by the • 
agreement are Riverside, Moodsville, Swingville, Bluesville, Washington Off- 
Beat, Popside, Jazzland and Harlequin which is the British equivalent of

SWEDEN 

Scandisc Recording Co. AB is the name of the newly founded label in Stock- 
holm. Behind this company is Ronald Sjogren, head of Southern Music and the 
label BFB. According to information available, BFB will cease to appear as rec- 
ord label, aid its artists will move to the new company. Lil Malmkvist, one of the 
BFB artists, has already made her debut record for the new company. However, 
it has not been released as it has not yet been decided which name will be 
used on the new label. Scandisc will act as a production company only and the 
distribution of its records will be handled by BFB. The latter is a book-pub- 
lishing company which joined the record biz some years ago. At present, 
Scandisc has the same address as Southern Music, but in near future, the rec- 
ord company will move to its own office. 

Jim Bailey, president of Dot Records from Hollywood, in town a few days for 
biz talks. In Sweden, he had the pleasure to find that Dot now is on the top of 
the charts with “Ching Ching.” 

Another new label in the record market in Sweden is Polyco. It is handled 
by Polyco AB at Kungsgatan 56, but the records are distributed by Svenska 
( Swedish) Pye in Sundbyberg. The debut record at Polyco is by a newcomer, 
Barbro Skinnar, with four Twist songs 

Horst Fischer, a talent scout from NDR (Nord Deutsche Rundfunk/North 
German Broadcasting Co.) in Hamburg, has been in Stockholm looking for 
Swedish artists for future German TV programs. He was very interested in the 
group The Violents, just back from a tour in Finland. They might be a coming 
attraction on German TV. 

The British group The Phantoms has been touring Sweden with very great 
success and will continue their tour above the time originally planned. The 
Palette artists have done so well that Palette in Sweden is planning a recording 
with them while they are here. 

Philips-Sonora has released an EP with French singer Catherine Caps, who 
sings “L’Eau Vive,” “C’est Si Bon,” “C’est Magnifique” and “Au Bal de 
1’ Amour.” Miss Caps was observed here when she sang a few songs in a Satur- 
day night TV show. A lot of people started asking questions about her and 
Philips decided to contract her immediately. 

Helge Roundquist, head of Cupol, told Cash Box that Mona Grain has been 
contracted to Restaurant Lorensberg in Gothenburg for April. Anita Lindblom, 
another top name on records here, will also be seen and heard at Lorensberg 
next month. Roundquist also was very happy about the success of Lage Wedin, 
a singer of religious songs. He is far from known in Sweden yet, but in Norway 
his records are very popular. 

Ake Gerhard tells Cash Box that the Swedish Eurovision Festival song “Sol 
Och Var” so far has been sold to nine countries, Germany, Austria, Switzer- 
land, Italy, France, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and Norway. Gerhard, composer 
of the song, was very happy about a Danish recording made by Sys Gregers 
for Tono. She has recorded the song in both Danish and Swedish, the latter 
released in Sweden by Cupol. 

From Cologne, Germany, a postcard from publisher Felix Stahl, who in- 
formed Cash Box that he has obtained the winning song from Luxembourg, the 
French “Un Premier Amour” for Scandinavia. 

Back to the Eurovision Song Festival again. Ake Gerhard, composer of the 
Swedish song, when asked about his opinion about the result (the Swedish song 
ended at 7th spot among the 16 participating songs) said “The result is not 
satisfying ‘Sol Och Var’ is the kind of song that either ends up at the top or 
becomes a complete fiasco. By ending up somewhere in the middle, it is obvious 
that the juries (as well as the composers who participated) were not aware 
about what it’s all about. Nobody, not even the people arranging those Festi- 
vals seems to know much about what competition involves. Some countries sent 
opera singers, others participated with songs that sounded as they came from 
an opera. Other countries, as England or Germany, believed that they were 
there to compete with pop songs with hit possibilities. ... It is ridiculous to 
ask a jury to decide which is the best, without telling them what the material 
is for.” Representatives from SBC-TV (Swedish Broadcasting Co-TV) have 
also been very critical about the technical quality of the sound from the Festi- 
val.

DENMARK 

Doing very well in Copenhagen these days is a group from the United States 
with “West Side Story.” 

Swedish singer Inger Berggren recently appeared in Danish TV with “Sol 
Och Var” and her EMI recording of the song is now on its way up at the top 
in the charts here. Denmark helped Sweden to reach a 7th spot (shared with 
Finland) in the Luxembourg Festival by giving the Swedish song three points. 
Each jury gave three, two and one points to the three songs they considered as 
“best.” 

It is Musikproduktion Winckler who is Danish publisher of “Ching Ching” or 
“Happy Jose” and not Morks Musikforlag, as reported in last week’s issue of 

Cash Box. 

Knut Morks Musikfoi’lag tells Cash Box that he is very satisfied with Ameri- 
can singer Sal Briggs, who recently debuted on records, l’adio and TV in Den- 
mark. It seems as he is on the way to be a world-wide success. Briggs is re- 
coi’ding in Denmark for Tidola, a label handled by Morks. Newspapers in Stock- 
holm have written that “Sal Bi'iggs is the biggest sensation in music field 
since Frank Sinatra. . . .”

ITALY 



BELGIUM 

J. van Dongen, Fonior’s public relations manager, phoned Cash Box that the 
famous trio Los Machucambos are doing fine in Belgium. They just released 
one of the best tango’s ever written: “El Professor.” With “Pepito” and “La 
Bamba” they were on the hit parade for weeks. Van Dongen is sure that with 
“El Professor” Los Machucambos will be once more in the top ten. 

Flemish songstress Rina Pia, who left Barclay in Feb. to sing exclusively 
for Decca, just made her first disk for her new label. On this EP Rina sings 
four beautiful tangos. The orchestra was conducted by Etienne Verschurem. 

Very talented French singer Jean Ferrat will come to Brussels at the end 
of April. During one week he will appear on stage in the Ancienne Belgique. 

French-bom vocalist Tohama (Decca) has joined the well-known orchestra 
of Hector Delfosse. She’s touring the country together with this formation. 
First reports show that this Decca-group is doing fine wherever they play. 

Young dynamic Eric Genty, singer with the Hector Delfosse Band, has made 
an enormous success of his song “Oh La La Louise.” This song got to second 
place on the Belgian Best Sellers and nobody will be astonished when it gets 
to the first place. This song has all the qualities to remain on the best sellers- 
lists for many, many weeks. 

The Strangers, four young men from Antwerp, made a hit out of “Oek’ 
Ndana,” Flemish version of the well known “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” The 
sense of humor of these four singers is very refreshing and they are really 
one of the best vocal groups in our country. 

H. Van Dam of Hebra Records/Brussels phoned Cash Box that he had a very 
interesting meeting with Neville Marten, European manager of Cash Box, who 
was on a trip in Belgium and Luxembourg. Van Dam discussed with Marten 
the music business in general and advised him that Hebra Records had dis- 
covered a young girl of 15, who certainly will make an international career 
thanks to her voice and a tremendous feeling of rhythm. Her name: Nicole 
Josy. She has just released her first single, with one original Belgian song 
called “Eh Teenager Eh” and the first French version of “The Young Ones” 
called “Trop Jeune.” Nicole went for the first time on a stage when she was 
only 3!4 years old and from that time she has been working regularly in 
various ballets. Besides her activities as a singer, Nicole is also an excellent 
dancer. Marten listened with great enthusiasm to Nicole’s first disk and found 
it extremely good. 

S.A. Gramophone released a lot of very important singles, such as “Mama- 
cita”/“Hawaii” by Vic Dana (Dolton/Liberty); “Stardust”/“You Belong To 
My Heart” by Timi Yuro (Liberty); “La Paioma Twist”/“Slow Twistin’” by 
Chubby Checker (Parkway/Columbia) and “Week End”/“Ya Ya Twist” by 
Burt Blanca (His Master’s Voice). On the EP-side S.A. Gramophone released 
on Pathe: Four french songs, sung in French by movie actor Anthony Perkins. 

S. A. Gramophone also released the winning song of the Belgian Song Contest 
For Eurovision, “Ton Nom,” sung by its composer Eric Channe. 

Discotrade’s Mr. Poulet told Cash Box that Discotrade-best sellers are: “Es- 
peranza” by Nino De Murcia (Festival), “Twist And Freeze” by Orlie (Top 
Rank), “Without A Song” by Dinah Washington (Mercury) and “Tendresse” 
by Jean Paul Mauric (Festiva)l. Hits-of-tomorrow: “Nut Rocker” by B. Bumble 
(Top Rank) and “Hey Baby” by Bruce Channel (Mercury). 

Mr. Marechal, composer of the great hit “De Boerinnekensdans,” who was 
working for Ronnex Records, Cobedi and Philips, became a free lance producer 
since the first of March. He has a lot of LP albums in production for Philips, 
Paris. His address: Avenue du Framboisier, 7/Bruxelles 18. 

Bel Air Records report that Les Pirates, a fine rock combo, are very success- 
ful with “Caroline” and “Twist Twist Baby.” 

Two new labels created in Belgium: Show records (director: Jules Nijs, 
manager of Rocco Granata, Alberto Cortez and a lot of other top-stars) and 

T. N. Records (director: Louis Marechal).

Paramount) and “Kissin’ Twist” by Jack Hammer (Artone)- — on EP: “Willy 
Schobben Hits” (Artone), “Oscar Peterson Plays Frank Sinatra” (Verve) and 
“Ray Charles Hits” (ABC-Paramount). On LP Artone’s best sellers are: “Ella 
In Hollywood” and “Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie” by Ella Fitzgerald 
(Verve) and “Chicago And All That Jazz” by Eddie Condon (Verve).

the following best sellers. On single: “Norman” by Sue Thompson (Funckler), 
“Ein Kleines Kompliment” by Louis Neefs (Palette), “The Peppermint Twist” 
by Joey Dee (Roulette), “Hilo Kiss” by The Waikiki’s and “What ’Cha Gonna 
Do” by Vince Taylor (Palette) — on EP: “Hey, Let’s Twist” by Joey Dee (Rou-

Peter Kreuder (Palette) — on LP: “Kreuder Spielt Kreuder” (Palette), “Sinatra 
Swings” by Frank Sinatra (Reprise) and “Sing Something Simple” by The 
Adam Singers (Palette). 

Artone, doing big business with Jack Hammer’s Twist recordings “Let’s 
Twist Again” and “Kissin’ Twist” has released Hammer’s third etching, with 
the humourous “Twist Talk”/“Crazy Twist.” 

Well known Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau, who gave a number of perform- 
ances in Amsterdam last week, visited Bovemas Gramophone House, showing 
himself very much impressed about the company’s modern-equipped studio. 

Johnny Jordaan, the Amsterdam troubadour, whose records surpassed tre- 
mendous sales figures for His Master’s Voice five years ago, recently taped 
a new typical Jordaan-flavored song with hit-qualities: “Daar Mag Je Alleen 
Maar Naar Kijken” and “A1 Ben Ik Mijn Haren Kwijt” on the flipside, both 
well-received on the Dutch record market. 

His Master’s Voice launched the LP-release of Yehudi Menuhin’s introduc- 
tion to the normal-typed symphony orchestra “Instruments Of The Orchestra,” 
available now in mono and stereo. 

New highlights in Imperial’s repertoire: Fats Domino’s “You Win Again,” 
The Lighttown Skiffle Group’s “Lientje” and the winning song of the Dutch 
TV-contest “Wat Bied Je Voor Een Liedje”: “Middellandse Zee” by Ellen 
Craamer. 

Dutch singer Corry Brokken has made a very good EP with the German 
Heinz Alisch Orchestra. Among the songs are “Maurice, Der Alte Charmeur” 
and “Er Macht Musik Am Montparnasse,” German version of Edith Piaf’s “Les 
Mots D’Amour” (Philips, L.C. Phonogram). 

“Bonnie Rock” (“My Bonnie Is Over The Ocean”) is at present the best 
selling Jumping Jewels-disk. It’s their first vocal record, with their singer 
Johnny Lion. Flipside has “C’M On Everybody — Twist” (Philips). 

Theme song from interesting new Dutch film “Kermis In De Regen,” “Kermis 
Blues,” is getting big interest in the soundtrack version of Skymasters trum- 
peter Gerard Engelsma, on Philips single. 

Corry Brokken is planned for a guest appearance in “Sunday Night At The 
London Palladium.” 


Cosh Box 




Durium has announced that it has purchased from Titanus the publishing 
and disk rights to “The Ballad of a Trumpet’ by Nini Rosso both for Italy and 
abroad. After months on the charts, including the top spot, the Rosso deck is 
number three on this week’s Best Sellers from Italy. j, 

America’s London International has requested a version of “Jessica,” from 
the new flick, as performed by Marino Marini, whose reading of “When, When, 
When,” Italy’s top song, is reportedly selling well abroad. 

Cash Box recently visited the offices of Melodicon, Philips Italiana — and an 
atmosphere of enthusiasm and dynamism reigns there. As all know, Philips 
will soon lose its representation of the Columbia label, but it has gained the 
Mercury catalog. 

The first Mercury session under the new setup, out this month, is Dinah 
Washington’s “September In The Rain.” j 

Mr. Motta, promotional director of Philips Italiana classical catalog, gave 
Cash Box advanced information on a project he has been working on. It in- 
volves the discovery of old, unpublished and virtually unknown Italian sym- 
phonic music. 

Marino Barreto, the Melodicon, was recently married. 

Milva, the new star at Cetra, is having success in France. After stints on the 
Musicorama last Nov. and just a few weeks ago at the Olympia, she has been 
asked to return next autumn for another three weeks at the latter theater. 

Miss Bacchini, sister of engineer Mr. Bacchini, who directs in Italy the Decca _ 
line, is in the States for a pleasure trip which will last some three months. 
Miss Bacchini handles disk promotion at Decca. 

While “Wheels” by Billy Vaughn is the top-seller at Decca-London, number 
11 on this week’s Italy’s Best Sellers, other successes on London include Pat 
Boone’s “Johnny Will,” Bob Moore’s “Mexico” and “Sombrero” by The Champs. 
Durium just released Kenny Ball’s “Midnight in Moscow” here and two in- 
teresting soundtracks from Italian flicks: “Sensilita” and “Mondo Cane.” The 
tracks are issued on Durium’s Cam label. 


BENELUX (Cont’d) 


Much is expected of new find Anita Berry, who has a very charming voice. 
This 24 years old Phonogram newcomer made her disk debut with “Middel- 
landse Zee” (winning song of a recent Dutch song contest) and the Dutch 
version of a Manos “Never On Sunday” Hadjidakis melody, “Weil Ic-h Weiss 
Dass Wir Uns Wiederseh’n”: “Als Ik Wist Dat Ik Je Terug Zou Zien.” Girl 
singer may have international appeal before long (Fontana). 

Pick of the L.C. Phonogram releases on the London label (single): “Pictures 
In The Fire”/“I’ll See You In My Dreams” by Pat Boone; “Melody In The 
Night”/“Everybody’s Twisting Down In Mexico” by Billy Vaughn; “Percola- 
tor” by Billy Joe & The Checkmates; “What’s Your Name” by Don & Juan; 
“Lizzie Borden” by The Chad Mitchell Trio and “Dream Baby” by Roy Orbison. 

Everyone is extremely enthusiastic about the movie version of “West Side 
Story.” Nearly 20,000 people went to see it since the first showing at the 
Du Midi Theatre in Amsterdam, only a few weeks ago. Philips has the original

The biggest job a record company has in building up top sales is building 
an artist, especially a local one, to popularity through publicity and good pro- 
duction. Two of the best tests of this popularity is the Radio Luxemburg 
“Lion” awards and the annual “Bravo Magazine” awards for the most popular 
singers. The Radio Luxemburg contest is run four times a year for the most 
requested records at the station and this time, first place (Golden Lion) went to 
Freddy Quinn for his recording of “La Paloma,” Nana Mouskouri picked up 
the “Silver Lion” for her German hit “White Roses Of Athens,” and Peter 
Kraus got the “Bronze Lion” for his recording of “Black Rose, Rosemarie.” The 
yearly Bravo awards were not much different. Many thousands of German 
readers, mostly teenagers, picked the following favorites: Male Singer: 1. 
Freddy Quinn 2. Gus Backus 3. Peter Kraus. Female Singer: 1. Connie Francis 

2. Caterina Valente 3. Conny Froboess. All of the artists record in the German 
language, and the award for Connie Francis is the first time that an American 
artist has been so honored. Gus Backus is also an American. As far as division 
of the artists between record companies goes, Polydor took all 3 honors among 
the male singers, and first place among the females. Caterina Valente records 
for Telefunken-Decca, and Conny Froboess records for the EMI-Electrola label. 

Germany’s top chanson singer Lale Anderson, who sold over 2 million copies 
of “Lili Marlene” in her top days, and who made a comeback with almost a mil- 
lion sales of “Never On Sunday,” is readying an LP sung in English and Ger- 
man with English commentary by the talented gal. She’ll visit the U.S. start- 
ing on May 13 to promote her LP and will be seen in New York, Chicago, Los 
Angeles before returning to Germany. 

A hot telegram arrived from Berlin’s American publisher-producer-DJ Paul 
Siegel announcing that Joe O’Brien from WMCA did a transatlantic interview 
with him regarding his Oederland Orchestra recording of “It’s A Long Way To 
Tipperary,” which is in the WMCA top 10. Paul hopes for a smash stateside 
hit to match his “Calcutta” and “Berlin Melody” successes as a publisher. Paul 
produced the date which produced the hot waxing. 

France’s top chanson star Charles Aznavour is really coming into his own in 
- Germany. His recording of “You Let Yourself Go” sung in German has passed 
the 50,000 mark in sales and is headed for the top, his EP in German is a best- 
seller and even his French LP for the Ariola distributed Barclay label is selling 
like hotcakes. Charles is due for a TV shot here soon again. 

Peter Rebhuhn of Rolf Budde Music reports that the Italian smash “Quando, 
Quando,” has been recorded in German by Paul Kuhn for Electrola and Caterina 
Valente with Silvio Francesco for Decca. The original recording by Tony Renis 
is already on the market. Firm’s top hit “Johnny Will” sung by Gerd Boettcher 
in German and Pat Boone in English takes over second place on the German 
Best Sellers this week. 

Germany’s biggest indie record firm, Ariola, which moves from Gutersloh to 
Munich in June, has opened its new recording studios in Munich. The studio 
will be the recording home of the firm’s most successful A&R man Helmut 
Jantsch, who just got married a few weeks ago. That’s it for this week in 
Germany.

Tony In Milan 

MILAN — Tony Williams recently 
posed in front of Messaggerie Musi- 
cali, one of the biggest record stores 
in Italy, with Joe Giannini of CDG. 
The store featured a display of the 
chanter’s current Reprise album. 
While in Italy, Tony appeared as 
guest star of the “Alta Fedelta” 
TV’er. Presently, the songster is put- 
ting his hopes in “That’s More Like 
It.” 




Well, France comes out No. 1 winner of the Eurovision inter-nation tele- 
vised song contest! But the very way in which this big competition is organized 
leads some people to look askance at the results. It must be kept in mind, for 
instance, that French is the language of the majority of countries which par- 
ticipate each year in the contest; namely, Monaco, Belgium, Luxembourg, and 
certain others are of Latin languages, like Italy, Spain, etc. It is certain, 
therefore, that songs sung in the French language have right from scratch 
more possibility of being understood and appreciated than those in other 
languages. In any case, Vic Tahar, the jukebox expert, claims that the winning 
song, “Mon Premier Amour,” has every chance of becoming a success and 
Philips is certainly ready to throw its full weight behind the disk by Isbelle 
Aubret (who sang the song in the contest). Isabelle just might become a star 
in her own right as a result. As far as publishing rights to the tune are con- 
cerned, it seems that the French Radio and Fantasia Editions (one of the Fes- 
tival outfits) have signed an agreement. The song’s lyricist, Vic, is one of 
Fantasia’s directors. 

Quite a while has gone by since we’ve talked of damage suits or suing in 
this column. Well, it couldn’t last. In any case, contrary to our announcement 
here, it is not Philips but Barclay who have released 3 new Jacques Brel 
singles, on the Barclay label, naturally. The disks include “Les Bourgeois,” 
“Bruxelles” and “Une lie.” We believe we can safely say, therefore, that Brel, 
breaking his silence at last, has signed a contract with Eddie Barclay. Now, 
let’s wait and see what Philips does, for don’t forget that these same tunes 
were recorded by Brel for Philips when the singer was doing his recent Olym- 
pia stint. The sides never were released by Philips and no reasons were given. 
The ensuing court case would be one of those long and very “Parisian” affairs 
with no chance of guessing the outcome. Let’s just note that Brel is now with 
Barclay. And as far as pop (“variete”) is concerned, Barclay has one of the 
best repertoires in France, what with Aznavour, Dalida, Leo Ferre, Brel and 
the Chausettes Noires all on his label. And speaking of Les Chausettes Noires, 
we wonder how the future will treat the young rock’n rollers, for their leader 
and soloist Eddie Mitchell has left to do his military training stint. For this 
moment, he happens to be stationed in the Parisian region, so perhaps some 
other records will be forthcoming. 

Caravelle Editions is doing all right, but really all right! After “La Legon 
Du Twist,” which it publishes and which is on its way to becoming the No. 1 
tune here, there’s “Le Clair De Lune A Maubeuge” from Caravelle’s files on 
which we have strong reports. The tune has served a doubly worthy cause: 1) 
to help us get to know P. Perrin (Ricordi) and 2) to make it possible for Bour- 
vil (EMI) to distinguish himself once more where the “chanson” is concerned, 
for he needed a new vehicle for his talent. Jacques Brel has shown his confi- 
dence in Gilbert Marouani, Caravelle’s director in turning over to him the pub- 
lishing rights to “Madeleine,” “Bruxelles” and “Une lie.” 

Vogue’s prexy, L. Cabat, is most pleased with the success that Les Copains 
are having these days. More than one interesting proposition is coming their 
way and like Sylvie Vartan (Decca) Les Copains plan to give up their studies 
and devote themselves exclusively to their singing career, much to Vogue’s 
satisfaction. The welcome accorded by the fans in the South of France to Rosy 
Armen’s (Vogue) first disk is so marked that she will cut another these days 
on which the main title is “Tango Italiano.” 

Now in the middle of a most successful cross country tour of France, Petula 
Clark plans to return for singing purposes to her native land next month. Be- 
fore taking off on her present jog, Petula recorded “Jolie,” “A Londres” and 
“11 Est A Toi, Mon Coeur.” 

Now released here on the Reprise label, the original film track from “The 
Three Sergeants.” Note that the disk went on the market here the same day 
the film started showing. 

L’Academie Charles Cros awarded a prize to a Vogue issue called “Dizzy 
Gillespie A Pasadena.” A new Everly Brothers release (on the Warner Bros, 
label) for France includes “Lucille” and “Temptation.” Other releases feature 
the first Bill Haley disk and a remarkable album of gospel songs by the Victory 
Baptist Church Choir called “Sunday Meetin’.” 

Last Thursday marked the start of the new Olympia show with a bill headed 
by Gilbert Becaud. Everyone awaited this event with impatience and curiosity, 
especially where Becaud’s new songs are concerned. Anne Sylvester (Philips) 
is also heard on the same bill. 

Philips has signed an exclusive contract with the Russian pianist, Nikita 
Magaloff. This week’s best-sellers on the Philips pop label include Johnny 
Hallyday’s version of “Retiens La Nuit,” which should surprise no one. “Le 
Lion Est Mort Ce Soir” is also holding its own very nicely.

Jack Mills, president of Mills Music, and Mariano Rivera Conde, A&R of 
RCA Victoc of Mexico, are the visitors of the week. Mills visited Buenos Aires 
as part of a Latin American tour that included Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, 
Chile, and other countries. Enrique Lebendiger, head of Fermata do Brasil 
(Mills’ representative in that country), came with him to Buenos Aires, and 
returned to Sao Paulo March 29. Rivera Conde paid one of his regular visits to 
RCA Argentina. 

Edami Publishers informs that it will work hard on “Mala Ley,” the latest 
Fuentes y Cardenas production. “Mala Ley” has been released by RCA via a 
Marco Antonio Muniz version. Odeon, Columbia and Music Hall will also record 
it. The tune was written in Mexico. The same publisher is promoting also “El 
Burro,” a new “chunga.” RCA has put on sale the Perez Prado recording. 

New Tonodisc releases: the label has bought the rights to release “Sabroso 
y sin Querer,” a Colombian tune recorded in that country by Kary Infante 
with the Alvaro Dalmar orchestra. Another release will be “II Celo en una 
Stanza,” Italian tune recorded on the Fonocolor label. 

News from RCA: Los Cuatro del Embars have recorded “Balada de la Trom- 
peta,” a tune that is showing strong sales. Fernando Borges, who has recently 
returned from a tour of Peru, will cut the latest Villota-Imperatore tune, “Pre- 
sentimiento.” (Villota-Imperatore are two well known Chilean composers; 
“Marcianita” and “Luminarias” have been written by them.) 

Rodriguez Luque, Disc Jockey’s topper, informs that Rosamel Araya (prob- 
ably the label’s most important artist) will start a new Latin American tour, 
that will include Chile, Peru, Venezuela and San Salvador. Jorge Sobral, an- 
other Disc Jockey artist, will visit Japan in October. Adriana Montiel is cur- 
rently in Spain, performing on radio and TV. Luque recently inked Alvaro 
Torres, Colombian artist who is now in Brazil. Torres will make a series of 
records for him as soon as he arrives in Buenos Aires. 

LU9 Radio Mar del Plata announced that it will start transmitting with new 
high power equipment that will allow the station (located in the city of Mar del 
Plata, at 400 kilometers from Buenos Aires) to be heard in Buenos Aires. 
This will be made by slightly changing its frequency. 

Hugo del Carril will start a new TV’r on Channel 9. It is said that he will 
receive nearly half million pesos for each program. Roberto Palmer, good com- 
poser and singer, has entered the Cantores de Quilla Huasi folk quartet, re- 
placing Carlos Vega, who has formed a new group. 

Miguel Davis of Famous (Ariel Records) informed Cash Box about the latest 
releases of his company. Under the ABC line, there is a new single by Paul 
A.nka (“Loveland” and “Dance On Little Girl”), and a double 45 with his latest 
hits, including “Cinderella” and “Kissin’ on the Phone.” On the Colpix label, 
there is a single by Oliver and The Twisters (“Mother Goose Twist”) ; the 
label has also put on sale two LP’s recorded by Musidisc in Brazil: “Tangos by 
Los Romanticos de Cuba” and “Sambas de Bossa Nova” by the Turma da Bossa. 
Ariel is planning a big launching for Brian Hyland, whose first record will 
appear soon: “The Night I Cried” and “I Never Stopped Loving You.” Disk 
jockey Ruben Machado has been playing this record with good success. 

Produeciones Fermata is preparing its second twist LP. Its title will be 
“Para Twisteros Solamente” (For Twisters Only) and will contain waxings by 
Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell and Meyer Davis. 

Mario Kaminsky of Microfon told Cash Box about his plans for the next 
months. “We’ll work hard on Audio Fidelity and Durium,” he said, “starting 
new promotional plans and advertising campaigns.” Microfon has already 
planned all its AF 1962 releases, which include A1 Hirt, Louis Armstrong, a 
record of Brazilian Carnival and others. On the Durium side, Microfon will 
keep “up to date with the hits, as that line has very good international artists.” 



Jack Mills, head of Mills Music in America, visited Editora Musical Mills 
Ltda. here recently as part of his first South American trip. In Rio de Janeiro, 
he was welcomed by representatives of the performing rights society, UBC, 
an affiliate of ASCAP. A special party at the Night & Day club was given in 
honor of Mr. & Mrs. Mills. Mills’ enthusiasm for Latin American music, espe- 
cially Brazilian, is very great, and indications are that he will make much more 
use of Latin music in the Mills’ catalog. 

Audio Fidelity recently made the first recording here of the Concerto for 
Guitar & Orchestra by the late Heitor Villa-Lobos, the great Brazilian com- 
poser. Soloist is Maria Livia Sao Marco, who is accompanied by a symphony 
orchestra under the direction of Armando Bellardi. Audio Fidelity just released 
an LP from Spain. It’s called “Spana Canta,” with Fernando Sirvent & the 
Basco Quintet. 

Among the new LP releases from RGE are: “Grandes Sucessos de Agostinho 
dos Santos (Agostinho dos Santos Greatest Hits)”; “De Tudo Um Pocho” with 
Uruguayan pianist and conductor Ruben Perez, the popular dance-band maes- 
tro; “Os Grandes Sucessos de Roberto Luna (Roberto Luna’s Greatest Hits).” 

Musidisc has nine new albums. The Musicdisc entries are: “A Chavo do Sue- 
esso (The Key of Success)” with teenager “Bossa Nova” Orlan Divo; “Isto E 
Romance (This Is Romance),” Nilo Sergio and his orchestra and voices; “Esto 
Es Cha Cha Cha,” Los Latinos and Tito Fuentes; “The Song Is You,” sax of 
Zito Righi and rhythm group; from Audiola: “Este E Bob Fleming,” the Brazil- 
ian sax player; “Sucessos de Carlos Gardel,” old tangos with the Davlis Tipical 
Orchestra; “Umbanda,” Brazilian singer J. B. De Carvalho; from United 
Artists: “Mais Uma Vez Adeus (Goodbye Again),” Ferrante & Teicher; from 
Command: “Provocative Percussion (Vol. 3),” Enoch Light’s orchestra. 

The twist and cha-cha are battling it out in Brazil, especially in Sao Paulo 
and Rio de Janeiro. In Sao Paulo, the twist is more popular among the young- 
sters, while in Rio de Janeiro the cha-cha is favored over the twist. However, 
the king of dances in Brazil is still the Samba.

CHILE 

These are some of the artists of the new Pacific Records roster: The Ram- 
blers (whose first waxing, “Rock del Mundial,” seems a good hit-to-be), Larry 
Wilson (teen singer, sings in English), Angel Parra, Charlie, Luz Eliana (song- 
stress from Valparaiso) and German singer Erwin Rasmussen. 

Dean Reed has returned from Buenos Aires and Uruguay to start a new tour 
of some Chilean provinces. Reed is an Amei'ican singer who had big success in 
Chile some time ago. 

There are two new radio stations: Radio Universidad de Chile, in Valparaiso

works only on FM.

Tonight,” The Tokens; “Te Sigo Viendo De Noche,” Alex Alexander; “Stella,” 
Lalo Valenzuela. Philips informs that it has put on the market singles by Yves

Cash Box — April 7, 1962- 


International Section 



Composer Toru Funamura left March 24 for Copenhagen, Denmark to pro- 
mote Japanese pop and folk songs. He will also arrange some sessions for five 
of his tunes at EMI in London, Columbia in Rome and Pathe Marconi in Paris. 
Funamura, who is an exclusive Columbia artist, will return home around June. 

All May releases by Japanese labels passed the standard committee of 
JPRA, the disk association. There are 3,626 tunes, 1,064 local, 2,462 interna- 
tional. 

Price-cuts for 7" disks, for both 45’s and 33’s, will take place in June, accord- 
ing to official word. Step was taken to keep-up with the Government’s 10% 
tax cut policy on 7" disks, effective April 1. 

Columbia singer Hiroshi Moriya left last week for his third visit to the U.S. 
The performer, who got recognition several years ago with his hit, “Arigataya 
Bushi,” will cut sessions for Columbia and MGM. He’ll return sometime this 
month. 

King will bow an all-whistle single next May. Sides, “Going Back North” 
and “Cruising On Lake Biwa,” are performed by Kei Kodama, a member of the 
Tokyo Mixed Chorus. Former tune was a recent success here under its Japanese 
tag, “Hokkiko.” 

Anton (“Third Man Theme”) Karas, the zither player, cut an album, “Anton 
Karas In Tokyo,” for King Records. Some Japanese material is included and, 
of course, “Third Man Theme.” 

Promising film actor Hideki Takahashi has been signed to the Teichiku label, 
and the diskery is currently seeking tunes for a session in the near future.

“Columbia Records of Mexico will represent Reprise Records in this coun- 
try.” Those were the words of Armando de Llano, Columbia’s executive to Cash 
Bo>x. The contract was signed by general manager Juan M. Villareal and Re- 
prise’s manager Mo Austin. Records will be sent to be released in Mexico be- 
fore Frank Sinatra’s charity dates here at Hilton’s Hotel and International 
Theater April 4. 

A big promotion was made by Jose T. Munoz of Gamma, executive repre- 
sentative of Chancellor’s here, because the an-ival of Frankie Avalon, who 
signed contract to perform at Terrazza Cassino’s night club from March 30 to 
April 8. Frankie may combine this engagement with some appearances on TV. 

Jose T. Munoz told Cash Box that there was great possibility that Gamma 
Records will take the representation in Mexico of the Westminster label. 

RCA will send to the Victor Company of Japan, 33 tapes containing LP’s of 
the most popular Mexican artists, including Amalia Mendoza, Hnos. Silva, 
Maria Victoria, Virginia Lopez, Chucho Zarzosa, Mariachi Vargas, Violines de 
Villafontana, Jose Alfredo Jimenez, Miguel Aceves Mejia, Libertad Lamarque, 
Hnos. Martinez Gil, Dora Maria, Jorge Negrete and others. All these tapes, 
which are the first recordings of these artists, will be studied by K. Matsuoka 
A&R of the Japanese company, to see if they can be released there. 

Popular Mexican singer Marco Antonio Muniz is continuing his tour through 
the Americas. His last record “Adelante” is still selling very well. 

Lucho Gatica left the country to do a few dates in New York. Later, Lucho 
will work in San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles. 

It is very possible that very soon Mexico will see Sammy Davis at the 
Seiiorial night club. 

Emilio Azcarraga, the big man in radio and TV in Mexico, has been named 
honorary president of the Mexican Association of Radio and TV Newspapermen. 

There’s a new young Mexican singer who has earned popularity in just a 
few months. Her name is Mayte and her first recordings at RCA are selling 
very well. Terrazza Cassino’s owner Pepe Leon decided to contract Mayte for 
his show and the audience was very pleased with her. Mayte’s big hit is “Run- 
around Sue,” in a Spanish version. 

Antonio Prieto, the Chilean singer who lived for the past five years in Mexico 
till he got his smash hit “Lo Novia” (The Bride), is now in Italy where he is 
performing. He also recorded 12 songs for an LP which will be sung in Italian 
and Spanish. 

Los Churumbeles de Espana (again with its singer .Tuan Legido), the Spanish 
music show which some years ago had tremendous popularity in Mexico, are 
having a good season now performing at the Los Globos night club and at 
Blanquita’s Theater. However, they can’t record together because Legido is an 
exclusive artist of Orfeon’s Records and Los Churumbeles are exclusive of 
RCA. There is a chance that both recording companies may arrange something.

THE CASH BOX 


BULLSEYE 


“I CAN MEND YOUR BROKEN HEART” (2:28) 

[Acuff-Rose BMI — Gibson] 

“I LET HER GET LONELY” (2:45) [Four Star BMI— Belew, Bishop) 
DON GIBSON (RCA Victor 8017) 

Don Gibson offers a potent follow-up stanza to his current chart-riding 
hit of “Lonesome Number One” with “I Can Mend Your Broken Heart.” 
The tune is lively self-penned item with a sales-laden pop flavor. Chant- 
er’s top-drawer vocal talents could quickly take the wax down the hits- 
ville path. “I Let Her Get Lonely” is a tender, slow paced weeper in the 
tradition-oriented country manner. Side should grab plenty of airplay. 


“I’LL LEAVE HIM TOMORROW” (2:06) 

[Earl Barton BMI — Tubert, Thomas] 

“WELCOME HOME” (1:50) 

[Aldon BMI — Greenfield, Goffin, King] 

JUDY THOMAS (Philips 40011) 

Philips showcases the promising talents of Judy Thomas, their first lark 
in the country department, on this first-rate, listenable wax. For a new- 
comer the thrush belts out “I’ll Leave Him Tomorrow,” a shuffle-beat, 
pop-flavored ballad teaming-up with the Merry Melody Singers, with the 
authority of a long-successful pro. Eye the wax for sales acceptance. 
“Welcome Home” is extremely spinnable uptempo affair rendered with a 
sincere country delivery. Watch this gal jump into the winner’s circle. 


‘LOOK OUT HEART” (2:17) 
[Central BMI — Austin] 


“PUT ME TOGETHER AGAIN” 
( 2 : 11 ) 

[Central Songs BMI — Howard] 
BOBBY AUSTIN (Capitol 4733) 

Newcomer Bobby Austin could achieve star status with this powerful 
double-header entry offering proof positive of his top-flight vocal qual- 
ities. In “Look Out Heart” the songster reads medium tempo pop-style 
self penned opus with the kind of feelingful delivery that spells success. 
“Put Me Together Again” is a rousing, uptempo Harlan Howard-penned 
item that could pick up some dual-market coin. Either side here has a 
good chance of reaching the charts. 


STU PHILLIPS (Columbia 42393) 

(B+) “ONE DAY EARLY” (2:03) 
[BMI Canada BMI— Phillips] 
Stu Phillips reads an extremely at- 
tractive lively folk-styled happy blues 
item with loads of country authority 
and poise. With the proper exposure 
the wax could make some noise. 

(B+) “THIS HEART OF MINE” 
(2:19) Cigma BMI — Phillips 
Here the songster delivers another 
fine side. Tune’s a shuffle-beat country 
lament in the traditional vein. 


JOEY COOPER (Chancellor 1103) 

(B+) “THIS HEART OF MINE” 
(2:10) [Jat BMI— Miller, Mor- 
ris] This is Chancellor’s first deck 
aimed at the country markets with 
Joey Cooper riding a lively popish 
tune with an infectious, danceable 
melody. Side has a good chance of 
making its presence felt in the sales 
department. 

(B) “I’M A FOOL” (2:20) [Amer- 
ican BMI — Bryan, Campbell] 
This time the chanter effectively util- 
izes the dual-track technique for an 
extremely listenable pop-styled, up- 
tempo ballad. 


GENE GUTHRIE (Manco 1034) 

(B) “RUNNING AWAY FROM 
THE BLUES” (2:42) [Blue- 
bonnet BMI — Guthrie] Here’s a pleas- 
ant bluegrass-flavored tradition- 
oriented country lament. The songster 
turns in a first-rate job in the chant- 
ing department. Plenty of airplay po- 
tential here. 

(C-f) “FEW AND FAR BE- 
TWEEN” (2:43) [Bluebonnet 
BMI — Ayoub, Hayden, Oatman, 
Guthrie] This time out Guthrie reads 
a familiar-sounding tear-jerker with a 
good, listenable lyric. 


ROBIN LEE (Reprise 20068) 

(B+) “GAMBLING MAN” (2:09) 
[Argo BMI — Schenzel] Robin 
Lee spearheads Reprise’s first effort 
in the country field with this high- 
spirited fast-moving opus all about 
the fates of a gambler. Tune has a 
top-drawer lyric and the chanter’s 
sincere delivery should bring the wax 
to the attention of spinners. Side 
seems a good candidate for making 
some noise. 

(B) “AN ANGEL WITH A 
BROKEN WING” (2:45) 
[Symbol BMI — -Murrill, Ram] An- 
other good side for Lee. Here he reade 
a feelingful hillbilly tear-jerker on a 
standard country theme. 


STONEMANS (Gluf Reef 1010) 

(B) “WHITE LIGHTNING” 

(3:40) [Glad BMI— Richard- 
son] The Stonemans read a real clever 
novelty side about a jug of country 
poison. Side includes a funny spoof 
and imitation of a couple of Opry 
stars. Wax looms as a natural for 
jockey attention. 

(B) “SADNESS” (2:20) [Dutch- 

ess BMI — Barton] The crew 
read a lovely hillbilly ballad with 
enough good stuff in it to pick up some 
spins. 


BILLY LOVE (Glee 10010) 

(B) “I’LL FIND MY WAY” (2:15) 
[Kenny Marlow BMI — Hayes, 
Cagle] Billy Love comes up with a 
high-spirited rollicking item with a 
commercial, spinnable sound. Wax 
should bring out a slew of spinners. 

(C+) “MY EMPTY ARMS” (2:15) 
[Kenny Marlow BMI — Hayes, 
Cagle] On this side the songster reads 
a traditional country weeper. OK 
chanting on the wax.

Editorial 


'61 Was The 
Export Market's 
Biggest Year 


As the world grows smaller with each new jet 
soaring at greater speeds, the world’s markets in- 
crease trade with each other and the result is more 
business for everyone. This has been the case as far 
as the coin machine industry is concerned. 

With the exception of a setback in 1959 when 
volume fell off slightly, the total number of ma- 
chines shipped from American ports each year has j 
increased to the record-breaking figures racked up 
at the close of December 1961. The twelve month 
dollar volume of $28,567,553 surpassed even the • 
greatest expectations for this twelve month period. 
An increase of seven million dollars over 1960, the j 
previous peak year, represented a one-third increase 
in business and that’s a lot of machines. 

The increase was spread almost evenly across the 
board with phonographs, amusement machines and 
vending getting an equal share. Just short of 100,- 
000 machines left this country for between ninety 
and one-hundred foreign countries. Belgium, Ger- 
many and the United Kingdom led the pack once 
again but new 7 markets, the main reason for the in- 
crease, opened doors to American equipment. 
Among them were France with more than $2 mil- 
lion being accounted for, the start of what is pre- ^ 
dieted to be a growing port for American equip- 
ment. Spain scored with a comparatively small dol- 
lar volume, but meaningful in every respect. Ex- 
porters here have high hopes for this country to de- 
velop into a major contender. African ports, several 
Asian countries, Peru, Chile, and a handful of 
smaller importers all add up to new markets that * 
can only grow as the individual economy grows. 

The increase in export volume has been felt 
here in the States in many ways. A desperate short- 
age of specialized equipment faces the industry 
now, but this same export market has helped whole- 
salers take untold volumes of used machines in 
trade, which in turn has eased the sale of new ma- 
chines, thereby strengthening the routes in this 
country. The end result is more income at the loca- ’ 
tion level— the foundation of the business. Again, 
the export income has permitted wholesalers to of- 
fer a more flexible finance program for the Ameri- 
can buyer who requires long-term credit in this 
economy. The picture is healthy from every angle. 

American-made equipment will continue to make 
greater inroads throughout the world with each 
passing fiscal year. Europe’s common market shows 
every indication of spurring U.S. exports via lower 
tariffs and reciprocal trade agreements. Bonds are 
growing stronger between the importer around the 
world and his American supplier. Increased faith in 
each other’s business policies must stimulate more 
business dealings. 

There seems to be no major obstacle in the path 
of success for the coin machine exporter. And as 
we said at the outset, 1961 was the greatest year lie’s 
ever had. So the only direction he can go is to con- 
tinue to go up.

Port Of Chicago 
Offers Wide Range 
Of Facilities 


First Belgian Coin Machine Show Held In 
Antwerp; 1 7 Firms Show Variety Of Phonos , 


CHICAGO — This city’s role as an 
overseas cruise port will be greatly 
expanded in 1962. Since the opening 
of the enlarged St. Lawrence Seaway 
i in 1959 the number of passengers 
moving through Chicago’s port has 
increased each year. In addition, the 
passenger service itself has been 
greatly expanded. 

This year ten lines will offer pas- 
senger service to a number of Great 
Lakes and Seaway ports, as well as 
an increasing number of overseas 
\ destinations. 

From Chicago thei'e will be pas- 
senger service to the United King- 
dom, the Continent (France, Belgium 
and West Germany), the Mediter- 
ranean (Spain, Italy and Yugoslavia), 
the Middle East (Israel, Lebanon and 
Egypt) and the Persian Gulf. 

In addition, lines serving other 
parts of the world, particularly the 
Far East, are studying the likelihood 
of inaugurating passenger service 
later in the season. Of the ten lines 
carrying passengers out of Chicago 
nine will use freighters. There are 
cargo ships with stateroom capacity 
for carrying up to 12 passengers each. 

The Oranje Line, the remaining car- 
rier, operates two cargo-passenger 
ships, the Princess Irene and the Prin- 
cess Margaret, each with a capacity 
of 115 passegers. 

These are the finest appointed ships 
sailing between Chicago and the Con- 
tinent, and their passenger fares re- 
flect their excellent accommodations, 
food and service. 

Freighter fares are less. However, 
their accommodations normally are 
quite comfortable, and many experi- 
enced travelers prefer freighter travel 
to any other. 

Montreal is the principal port of 
debarkation for passengers who want 
to take the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence 
Seaway cruise, although most carriers 
will discharge passengers at other 
ports. 

The average sailing time between 
‘ Chicago and Montreal is 10 or 11 days, 
depending on the number of stops 
made and the time taken in discharg- 
ing and loading cargo at each. From 
Montreal to the United Kingdom, 
France, Belgium, Holland and West 
Germany it will take approximately 
two more weeks. From Chicago to 
Spanish, Italian, Israeli, Lebanese and 
L Egyptian ports it takes approximately 
four to five weeks; and, to the Persian 
Gulf six weeks. 

Fares to Montreal range from an 
average of $350 (on the Irene or Mar- 
gariet) to $80 (on the Yugoslav Great 
Lakes Line) with the average being 
about $200. To the Continent fares 
range from a high of $700 (again on 
^ the Irene or Margariet) to a low of 
$352 (on Michigan Ocean Line) with 
the average being about $400. 

To the Mediterranean, fares approx- 
imate $300 to Italy, $400 to the Middle 
East and $770 into the Persian Gulf. 
Agents for the lines report that in- 
terest in the 1962 service is brisk, ac- 
cording to Jim Elliott. Many report 
«- their ships are booked solid for early 
sailings. 

Here is a list of the ten carriers, 
the areas they serve, and their Chi- 
cago agents: 

Oranje Line, Great Lakes ports and 
the Continent, Georgian Bay Line. 

Furness Great Lakes Line, United 
Kingdom, Furness, Withy & Company. 
- Hamburg American Lines, North 
German Lloyd and Ernst Russ Line,

tinent, all — United States Navigation

Vendors During 5-Day U.B.A. Convention 


ANTWERP — The Automaten Salon de L’Automatique, the first 
phonograph and vending Exhibition to be held in Belgium took 
place from 23rd to 27th March at the Centre National de Bati- 
ment, Antwerp, under the auspices of L’Union Beige de L’Auto- 
matique and sanctioned by the Chamber of Industry in Antwerp. 
The organizer, Mr. A. Van de Wege, President of U.B.A. told 
Cash Box that it is hoped to make the event an annual affair. 
Antwerp, with its vast port is a vital center of the continental 
coin machine industry and ideally suited to such an Exhibition. 
Belgium has a population of 8,000,000 and an estimated 22,000 
juke boxes representing a greater proportion per head of the 
population than in any country of the world. The reason for this 
is that Belgium, by tradition, is a land of cafes and bars — all 
potential juke box locations. Nevertheless, the advent of TV and 
the development of credit facilities for practically every com- 
modity, has adversely affected business in bars, cafes, cinemas 
etc. 

Seeburg Emphasizes Vending Line 

However, despite this, there is still a healthy demand for juke 
boxes particularly in the latest models from America notably 
Seeburg, Rock-Ola, Wurlitzer and A.M.I. Imports from Germany 
and France have also increased during the last few years. The 
Antwerp Exhibition which was confined solely to phonographs 
and vending accommodated 17 exhibitors from Belgium, France, 
Holland and Germany. Phonographs and vendors were displayed 
in equal proportions with several exhibitors showing both kinds 
of equipment. One of the most impressive stands in this cate- 
gory was that of S.A. Seeben N.V. The new Seeburg S.D.S. 
phonograph with ‘Artist Of The Week’ programs was well to 
the fore with a range of wall machines and background music 
units. However, primary importance was placed on vending, the 
main item being the Seeburg Modulator Candy vendor seen in 
Europe for the first time. Completely automatic with revolving 
spiral shelves the machine offers 12 adaptable selections with an 
additional 6 for gum and mint. The Seeburg display also fea- 
tured cold drink, coffee, pastry and cigarette vendors — the latter 
adapted to accommodate popular Belgian brands. 



French, German, Belgian Machines Displayed 

Seeburg phonographs were also on the stand of P.V.B.A.- 
Verheda, leading importers of juke boxes, games and 
vendors. Rock-Ola phonographs and vendors were shown by 
their Belgian importers S.A. Brabo 
Corp. who were exhibiting candy and 
cold drink vendors by Fisher & Lud- 
low of England, cigarette and food 
vendors by Telefonbau of Germany 
and gum, postcard and charm ma- 
chines by The Oak Corporation of 
America. N.V. Automatic Canteen, 

Benelux — Belgian branch of Auto- 
matic Canteen of America, featured 
the German manufactured Tonomat 
Telemaric B.200 stereo phonograph 
for which they are sole importers and 
distributors. Two cigarette vendors 
were also displayed, the Rowe 18 selec- 
tion and Diplomatic 7 selection manu- 
factured by Automatic Canteen of 
America. Ets. Rennotte, only manu- 
facturer of juke boxes in Belgium 
showed their 100 and 80 selection con- 
soles specially designed for hotel in- 
stallation. The Rennote product will 
shortly be manufactured under license 
in Spain by Petaco of Madrid. Cameca 
of France, manufactui’ers of electronic 
and scientific equipment drew the 
crowds with Scopitone on show in 
Belgium for the first time. The Scopi- 
tone cinebox which combines 16mm 
color film with magnetic sound has a 
capacity of 36 films. Manufactured in 
Paris where there are 500 in operation 
the machine is also selling in Switzer- 


JENNEN’S sales representative Mr. Elias, demon- 
strates one of ten cigarette vendors on display, to

Jennen Automaten N.V. of Amster- 
dam confined their display to vending 
with a wall of food vendors manu- 
factured by Wiegandt of Germany for 
whom they are sole importers and dis- 
tributors in Benelux. Also on show 
cigarette vendors manufactured by 
D.W.M. of Germany. Dynavend S.A., 
sole Belgian manufacturers of vending 
machines drew much attention with 
their book vendor, a five selection 
model with 75 capacity. A subsidiary 
of A.C.E.C. of Belgium and Gloucester 
Equipment Ltd. of England, Dynavend 
also exhibited their 4 selection bottle 
vendor DV6 with 250 capacity. Com- 


pagnie Beige des Automatiques

Seitz of Germany for whom they are 
exclusive agents in Belgium, includ- 
ing a self-service sandwich machine,

ANALYSIS OF 1961 ANNUAL COIN 
MACHINE EXPORT VOLUME REPORT 

AAA 

Cash Box 


GENERAL The export business witnessed a record-breaking volume during 1961, the likes of which 
ANALYSIS hasn't been seen before. With $28 1/2 million hitting the scales, almost 100 , 000 ma- 
chines were shipped to foreign ports. The increase represented a one-third improvement 
over 1960 and the statistics which appear in this section would make any annual report 
look just fine. The gains were spread evenly across the board with phonos, amusements, 
and vending getting a good share of the increase. Phonos picked up $2 million, games 
$2 1/2 million, and vending $2 1/2 million — and those are nice round figures. The annual 
volumes in dollars have moved from $20 million in ' 58 to the present 1 61 figures of $28.5. 
Place those dollars on a bar-graph and the export business looks better than those 
healthy television numbers they've been flashing around of late. The prime reason for 
the increase is the growing number of markets taking coin machines. Twenty-one countries 
took phonos that didn't receive any in '60. Fourteen nations received amusement 
machines not on record during '60 and twenty-two importers who weren't using vending 
equipment the previous year were cause enough for the total figure in this area to almost 
double — just missed $6 million. Argentina and Asia imported large quantities of vendors 
during '61. With a goose egg for '60, Argentina received more than a quarter-million 
dollars in vendors from January thru December. The current political situation there 
could knock this gain for a loop however, and many fingers are crossed. Japan made a name 
for itself in the vending category, and scored heavily in the games slot as well. A rise 
of seven times the previous figure verifies earlier forecasts of good business from this 
nation. The biggest individual gain in any one category was made in Europe in the amuse- 
ment machine field. Posting a healthy $5.6 million in '60, the Continent scored a re- 
sounding $8. 1 in 1961 , without the aid of the slot machine, a unit that undoubtedly 
helped the '60 figures. Inside Europe, France made the biggest jump posting almost $2 
million of the gain alone. Belgium increased $1 million, and the U.K. , land of the slot 
machine, fell off by $1 million due to the earlier influx of gambling machines. In all, 
coin machines in general enj oyed its best year yet . 

PHONOS As long as the world continues to appreciate late model and new American juke boxes the 
export business will continue to thrive. 1961 saw the volume increase by 20% reaching 
$12.4 million. The biggest gains were made inside Europe where Belgium, France 
and Switzerland registered big increases. Asia, no slouch these days, went from a pre- 
vious $388 thousand to $868 thousand, more than double the previous year's volumes. 
Japan romped to a $160 thousand after a near-nothing in '60. The Nansei Islands, a main 
receiving port, posted imports on phonos of more than half-a-million dollars and with 
smaller A sian ports taking in proportionate shares of the imports, the overall f igure 
just naturally reached a new high. 

When there are gains, there are almost always losses and for the record here are a list 
of some of the losers : Mexico , Honduras , Costa Rica, Dominican Republic , Venezuela, Nor- 
way, Denmark, U.K. , Portugal, Iran, the Philipines and Australia. Each one registered 
a drop in phono volume during the record-breaking year. 

GAMES The increase in amusement machines from '60 to '61 was eye-opening. A total of $10 mil- 
lion was spent in the purchase of coin-operated games from the USA by approximately 
seventy natio ns doing business with American co inmen. The rise was accounted for mostly 
in Europe, naturally, where the Continental coinmen increased their games volume from 
$5.6 million to an $8. 1 million mark, never before attained. Biggest receivers inside 
Europe as far as games were concerned were Belgium (up $1 million) France (up a walloping 
$2 million) , and Italy, where much is expected in the future in the way of gains in games 
imports. Africa posted gains too, and much of the increase was in the area of arcade 
machines. Although reports do not single out arcade machines as such, it can be 
reported from reliable sources that much of the equipment going into Africa is for 
the a rcade locations. The continent doubled its intake during ' 61. Asia managed to come 
up with a good showing in games, running from an early $430 thousand to the new figure of 
$543 thousand. Judging from the increase in dollar volume and the decrease in numbers of 
units, it can be assumed that the quality of the equipment is being t raded up while the 
price, which has been most competitive, remains proportionately the same. 

VENDING The vending export market doesn't enjoy near the broad field of countries as does the 
phono-game business but it certainly makes up for it in dollar volume and machines. In 
1960 the vendors accounted for about $5 1/2 million in overall volume. This past year 
that figure was increased to close to $6 million. Some gain ! 31 , 278 vendors were shipped 
to foreign countries and Europe, leader in every category, doubled its intake. Asia 
tripled earlier figures. Africa dropped out of the running and Australia remained about 
the status quo. 

Biggest gain in Europe was made in Western Germany where the Germans bought more than 
$1 million worth of vendors during the 12-month period. Last year this figure didn't 
make the 1/2-million slot. Switzerland was up $100 thousand, Britain doubled its vol- 
ume, the Netherlands became a major entity, Belgium reached a healthy figure, France 
continued along its phono-games intake policy and bought more than $100 thousand in 
machines, and Italy scored with close to $100 thousand. 

In South America the picture was about the same, as far as increases go. The early 
figure of $35 thousand looked for an increase but never expected the $302 thousand that 
was posted. Main reason for the big jump was Argentina (and they have to try to overthrow 
the Government!). The dangers of doing business in the Lat in-American countries are 
many, but as indicated in Cuba, the Dominican Republic , and even Colombia, the risks are 
great but the volume is there for those who care to gamble. In the case of Argentina, 
money outstanding is in jeopardy. Look for vending to grow at a faster clip than usual.

Redd Names Van Der Weyde Director 
Of Sales For European Markets 
Common Is Former Exec With German Mfr. 



BOSTON — Si Redd, president. Redd 
Distributing Company, Inc., this city, 
has announced the appointment of 
Marinus Van Der Weyde of Ingel- 
heim-Rhein-Nord, Germany, as its Di- 
rector of Sales for the European area. 
Van Der Weyde will conduct all busi- 
ness from Ingelheim at the present 
time, but will be travelling through- 
out Europe, contacting customers in 
the various countries. 

Exploratory trips to Europe by 
Messrs. W. S. Redd, and Bob Jones, 
Sales Manager, proved that to prop- 
erly serve the growing list of custom- 
ers in Europe, it was necessary to 
have a qualified sales representative 
in that area at all times. “This is true 
not only to consummate sales with 
various customers, but also to keep 
Redd Distributing Company, Inc. ad- 
vised promptly of the changes in de- 
mands of the various areas,” said 
Jones in a statement last week. 

Van Der Weyde’s appointment 
comes after a long search by Redd 
Distributing Company, Inc., for an in- 
dividual with the proper background 
in sales of coin operated equipment 
to represent them in the European 
market. His most recent position was 
as export manager for the largest 
coin machine manufacturer in West 
Germany, which he has held for sev- 
eral years, and is well acquainted 
with all phases of the export trade. 


All transactions in the European 
area will be handled by Van Der 
Weyde on behalf of Redd Distributing 
Company, Inc., thus releasing Messrs. 
W. S. Redd and Bob Jones to attend 
to export in other areas of the world 
as well as handling domestic business. 

“In addition to our present export- 
ing of music and games, we hope to 
explore more thoroughly the possibil- 
ity of exporting used vending equip- 
ment,” said Redd. 

Redd Distributing Company, Inc., 
with W. S. Redd, as President, has 
been in the coin machine business for 
almost thirty-five years. It was re- 
located in Boston twenty years ago, 
and today is the largest independent 
distributor in the six-state area. Redd 
Distributing Company, Inc. is the ex- 
clusive distributor for Seeburg Phono- 
graphs and Vending Equipment; Bally 
Manufacturing Company; Chicago 
Dynamic Industries; Fischer Sales & 
Mfg. Co. and Giepen Associates, as 
well as J. H. Keeney & Co. Inc. 

Export started about eight years 
ago with a small trickle of business, 
to the present large scale of doing 
business throughout the entire world. 
Two years ago the increased volume 
of export and vending business neces- 
sitated the removal to the present en- 
larged facility at 126 Lincoln Street, 
Brighton (Boston) 35, Massachusetts. 


REDD EXECS: Left to right, Marinus Van Der Weyde, newly appointed Di- 
rector of Sales for Europe; Bob Jones, Sales Manager, and Si Redd, President

export division.

Macke Vending Has 
Record Earnings 

WASHINGTON, D. C.— In a report to 
shareholders accompanying the regu- 
lar quarterly dividend of 1114^ per- 
share, Aaron Goldman, Macke presi- 
dent, said that sales, earnings and 
cash flow reached record levels for 
the quarter ended December 31, 1961. 

Sales reached a new high of $7,325,- 
117, an increase of $3,004,319 over the 
$4,320,798 for the comparable period 
in 1960. 

Net profit after taxes amounted to 
27(1 per share compared to 19^ per 
share for the same period in 1960. 

Depreciation and amortization to- 
taled $422,734 against $258,338 in 
1960. 

Goldman said that sales steming 
from operating firms acquired over the 
past twelve months coupled with in- 
creasing gains by older subsidiaries 
are key factors in these larger sales 
and profits. 

Macke has recently installed new 
coin-operated feeding facilities in the 
U. S. Patent Office, Washington, D. C., 
(CB, Mar. 24, p. 50) Reigel Paper 
Company, Milford, New Jersey, and 
Allied Chemical Company, Philadel- 
phia, Pennsylvania. 


U.S. Importers Look For Greater Share 
Of Norwegian Vending Business 


OSLO — More than one American coin 
machine exporter has made it his busi- 
ness to stop at this Norwegian capital 
to view the prospects of increased 
business from vending machine buy- 
ers. 

The demand here for vendors is 
considerable what with early closing 
hours of retail stores (5 PM week- 
days, 3 PM Saturdays). Norwegian 
reports indicate that the USA fur- 
nishes little of the vending machines 
used here. Germany, Sweden and Den- 
mark supply most of the equipment. 
Equipment here must be suited to a 
climate which includes freezing tem- 
peratures for several months of the 
year and mild summers. 

There is a different electrical cur- 
rent used in Norway than in the rest 
of Europe (current electrical supply 
here is a 50-cycle, 220-volt current). 


Most equipment is reportedly designed 
for 60-cycle current. Furthermore, 
Norwegian coins are not always uni- 
form in size causing coin reject prob- 
lems.

The major items presently manufac- 
tured by Tru-Wrap Industries, Inc. 
are the Tru-Wrapper and associated 
Heat Tunnels which can wrap up to 
20 packages per minute and sells for 
less than $1,000.00. It is said to be the 
most important packaging unit on the 
market today. 

In order to meet the growing de- 
mand for its machines and to fill its 
present _ backlog of orders, Tru-Wrap 
Industries’ factory and showrooms 
are being moved to 250 East 3rd St., 
Mt. Vernon, N.Y., adjoining the 
Douglas Microwave premises, thereby 
more than doubling its present manu- 
facturing facilities, and allowing for 
a close integration of Douglas Micro- 
wave’s Engineering and New Product 
Development Division’s facilities and 
personnel, with that of the new sub- 
sidiary. 


James Vending 
Expands Space 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — James Vend- 
ing Machine Co., Inc. has relocated its 
offices and warehouse in a modern 6,- 
000 square foot plant at 6507 Chillum 
Place, N.W., according to Eli Guss, 
the company’s president. In addition 
to the economy and convenience of a 
more central location, this move con- 
solidates all departments under one 
roof, Guss said, and quadruples stor- 
age space for equipment and supplies 
in a weather-controlled warehouse 
area. The company’s new quarters 
also provide a showroom for the dis- 
play of automatic vending equipment, 
plus a sanitation room for sterilizing 
vending equipment and a repair and 
maintenance shop.

New Booklet Lists 
250 Machines As 
‘Approved’ Under 
Health Programs 

CHICAGO — Members of National 
Automatic Merchandising Association 
recently received a list of vending- 
machines approved under the NAM A 
Public Health Program, reports 
David E. Hartley, association public 
helath counsel. 

Entitled “A Listing of Letters of 
Compliance,” the just - published 
NAM A booklet lists 250 past and 
present production model vending 
machines produced by 49 manufactur- 
ers participating in the NAMA Vend- 
ing Machine Evaluation Program. 

“This represents a 30 per cent in- 
crease over last year in manufacturer 
participation in the program,” Hart- 
ley said. 

The booklet lists only those vending 
machines for which a “Letter of Com- 
pliance” has been awarded as of Feb- 
ruary 15, 1962. 

Hartley explained that NAMA ma- 
chine evaluations are based on com- 
pliance with the U.S. Public Health 
Service Ordinance and Code and the 
“NAMA Machine Evaluation Man- 
ual” which contains additional re- 
quirements for design, construction, 
materials, testing and safety. 

Testing of equipment is conducted 
for NAMA by Michigan State Uni- 
versity’s Department of Microbiology 
and Public Health, and the Indiana 
University Research Foundation. 

A “Letter of Compliance” is a 
statement by one of these evaluation 
agencies showing that the examined 
machine meets all national “Code” 
and NAMA requirements. 

Hartley pointed out that “Letters 
of Compliance” are kept on file by 
each examining agency, by NAMA, 
and by the U.S. Army, Navy and Air 
Force Departments. 

Hartley said non - participating 
manufacturers may receive informa- 
tion about the NAMA Vending Ma- 
chine Evaluation Program by writing 
to the association’s headquarters at 7 
South Dearborn Street, Chicago 3, 
Illinois. 


Canteen Announces 
'Wintadent" Chewing 
Gum For Vendors 

CHICAGO — Automatic Canteen Com- 
pany of America has announced that 
it is marketing nationally a combina- 
tion menthol-wintergreen flavored 
chewing gum said to be the first new 
flavor combination in over 100 years. 

Called “Wintadent,” and bearing the 
slogan, “A Cool Chew,” the new gum 
is being sold through Canteen vend-

per carton and retails for the stand- 
ard price of 5 <j: per pack. 

Maurice Glockner, Automatic Can- 
teen Vice President of Merchandising 
and Products, said the new Wintadent 
flavor “is the result of many months 
of research and testing in search of a 
new type of taste for Canteen cus- 
tomers. Test marketing has proven 
the product has enthusiastic accept- 
ance and it is now being distributed 
nationally.” 

In fiscal 1961, Automatic Canteen’s 
Scoop Products subsidiary produced a 
sales volume of over 20,000,000 units. 
Expansion plans call for the addition 
of 11 or 12 items to the Scoop candy 
and gum line to boost estimated vol- 
ume for fiscal 1962 to more than 30,- 
000,000 units. 

The Scoop subsidiary also produces 
soft drink syrups in plants in Chicago, 
Kansas City and Dallas. New products 
are being developed in beverage-type 
soups and soft drink flavors. In addi- 
tion, Scoop Products, Inc., has pro- 
duced and sold more than 200,000,000 
plastic cups for vended beverages.

out that the new association will en- 
able the company to serve its cus- 
tomers more effectively and will en-

Year In Coin Machine Industry

CURT SVENSSON 

STOCKHOLM— This week a well- 
known coinman here will celebrate his 
25th Anniversary in the coin machine 


business. Curt Svensson, of Abata 
Handels AB, Scandinavian coin ma- 
chine firm, will be honored in Bern’s 
Restaurant, a famous eating place 
and many coinvets are expected to at- 
tend to toast the grand old man. 

Curt has handled the Williams 
amusement machine line since 1956 
and through an affiliated company, 
Abadan Handels AB, has distributed 
the Seeburg phonograph and back- 
ground music line. 

As this is written in New York City, 
as received from our Scandinavian 
correspondent, a toast seems in or- 
der. At the risk of breaking up the 
language we will try. Here goes: Ja, 
Maa Han Leva, which we believe is a 
Swedish expression used on such oc- 
casions. Good luck Curt!

Seeburg Names Pares Puerto Rican Distrib 


To Handle Phonos, 
Games, Vending 

CHICAGO— The Seeburg Sales Cor- 
poration has announced the appoint- 
ment of Osvaldo Pares, Inc., Calle 
Post No. 17, Mayaguez as exclusive 
distributors in Puerto Rico. 

Thirty-four year old Osvaldo Pares, 
president of the company, is a native 
Puerto Rican and a veteran coin man 
on the Island. The company will han- 
dle Seeburg’s full line of coin-oper- 
ated phonographs, vending and back- 
ground music equipment and will ex- 
pand its already comprehensive sales, 
serviee-and parts facilities. 

Pares visited the Seeburg PTant in 
Chicago in Februai’y along with his 
associate, Joseph Mangone, to work 
out the details of his franchise, and 
Seeburg Sales Manager, Edward 
Claffey, of the Music Division, re- 
cently spent a week with Pares and 
his staff of 16 men detailing the com- 
pany’s sales policies and merchandis- 
ing aids. 



CONGRATULATIONS: Senor Pares is congratulated on being named Seeburg 
distributor in Puerto Rico. L. to r. Lcdo. Baez Garcia, Ed Claffey, Pares, and 
Joe Mangone, Florida coinman who is an associate of Pares. 


Betti Helps Plan Pool 
Tourneys In Jersey 

NORTH BERGEN, N.J.— Pool tables 
in Jersey taverns are not unusual, 
but tournaments on the tables are. 
That’s what has happened in the last 
few months here after several oper- 
ators and members of the H. Betti & a 
S ons operating firm decided that pool 
had its place at the tournament levels. 

Bert Betti stated last week that the 
tourneys have been so successful that 
one of the tavern trade papers re- 
cently devoted a two-page spread to 
the games and reported on standings ^ 
of the players, scores, and other perti- 
nent information. 

“These time honored sports have 
not only brought about better tavern ^ 
relationships, but a renewed interest 
in the games to the point where a 
large audience is attracted during^ 
scheduled games. This is also a defi- 
nite inducement for the formation of 
tavern teams,” reported the tradepa- 
per last month.

National Magazine Raps Coin Machine Business 

Claims Writer Was Not Qualified , Didn't Take Time To Learn 


Osvaldo Pares, native of Mayaguez, 
Puerto Rico, was born December 22, 
1927. 

Since he was a child, he showed a 
fine aptitude for business — and grew 
up helping his father in his produce 
and food business. 

Because of financial conditions his 
college education was hampered, and 
therefore he took a position as an 
agent for the Wurlitzer Distributor. 
Two years later he established his 
own business and in three years be- 
came the most outstanding man in 
the phonograph industry in Puerto 
Rico. 

His motto is “Service Today — Not 
Tomorrow.” All of his customers have 
the utmost confidence and respect in 
him because of his hard work and in- 
tegrity. 

His plans for the future are to con- 
tinue in the same manner which has 
shown him success at an early age. 
Now with the Seeburg Franchise he 
is so enthusiastic that he says he will 
make Seeburg the “King of the Is- 
land.” 

He is married to Carmen Magali 
Colon, who has helped him in his busi- 
ness, and he is the father of a beau- 
tiful daughter, Magalita Pares-Colon. 

This is the man who will distribute 
Seeburg products in Puerto Rico. 
After you know him, you will know 
another self-made man. 


CHICAGO — Atlantic Monthly, a 
nationally circulated literary maga- 
zine , with offices in Boston, featured 
an article entitled “Juke Box Piracy’’ 
in its April issue which was harmful 
to the coin machine industry in many 
respects. The article, which proved to 
be typical of many mass media fea- 
ture stories outlining the “racketeer 
influence,” etc., in connection with the 
“juke box rackets,” hit at the oper- 
ator, the record business, undesirable 
elements and the usual unqualified 
statements generally included in this 
type material. 

The author, Stanley Green, was 
termed “unqualified to write on this 
subject” by a Chicago corn machine 
distributor, Joe Robbins, who an- 
swered the article last week. 

Robbins, who is the sales manager 
of Empire Coin Machine Exchange, 
Inc., has written a letter to the pub- 
lishers of Atlantic Monthly, criticis- 
ing the article, in a highly construc- 
tive approach. Robbins’ letter, a copy 
of which was forwarded to Cash Box 
at the time it was mailed, is reprint- 
ed below, and states, we believe, the 
feelings of the entire industry, in an

Attention'- Editorial Department 
Gentlemen : 

The article “Juke Box Piracy” by 
Stanley Green on page 136 of the 
April issue is a completely distressing 
collection of untruths and half- 
truths. Mr. Green, who, incidentally, 
is not qualified to write authoritative- 
ly on this subject, has presented a 
one-sided collection of pseudo facts. 

Aside from the fact that the juke 
box operator is in desperate financial 
straits himself these days due to ever 
increasing costs and diminishing rev- 
enues, it is a well established fact 
that juke boxes are instrumental in 
making hits of many records, and 
also, are a great factor in establish- 
ing unknown recording artists as 
stars. As a matter of fact, up and 
coming young singers make a practice 
of presenting, free of charge, hun- 
dreds and hundreds of records to juke 
box operators throughout the country 
in the hope that they will put them 
on the phonographs and thus get their 
tunes played by the public. 

While it is true that radio stations, 
TV networks, etc., do pay a royalty 
on each record played, it is further 


true that the playing of these records-* 
is a means of revenue income through 
advertisements. These advertising 
revenues run into millions of dollars 
per year. The juke box operator has 
no such income and, therefore, can- 
not, under any circumstances, be 
placed in these categories. 

Any credence which I might place 
in the veracity or justification of Mr. > 
Green’s article is completely elimi- 
nated by his comment, “the public’s 
growing awareness of underworld 
domination of the juke box business.” 
Here, again, we have one of these 
pie-in-the-sky statements made by 
someone who has no knowledge of the A 
industry and cannot, under any cir- 
cumstances, back up this statement 
with any facts. 

The business admittedly has unde- 
sirable elements in it, however, per- 
centage wise, they are in a very small 
minority and under no circumstances 
could the industry be construed as ' 
being, or about to become, dominated 
by hoodlums. This is a connotation 
and half truth which is foisted upon 
the public by people like Mi*. Green 
who do not understand the business 
and do not want to take the time to 
find out what it is all about. 

If I was to have read this article 
in any of a hundred other magazines, 

I would probably have not given it 
much notice. However, to despoil the 
pages of a magazine such as ATLAN- 
TIC, to which I have been a subscrib- 
er for many years, is shocking. y 

I am surprised, indeed, that your 
editorial staff does not more closely 
verify the authenticity of articles 
such as this which serve no useful 
purpose and are simply slanderous 
and bigoted. An article of this type 
has no place in a magazine such as 
yours. 

Cordially yours,

Japan May Manufacture Juke Boxes 


l TOKYO — American coin machines 
have so far dominated the scene in 
Japan but rumors lately have indicated 
that several Japanese firms will begin 
to manufacture juke boxes in the near 
future. The country has had such ex- 
cellent success in the electronic and 
appliance fields of late that several 
businessmen have decided that the 
_ production of domestic coin-operated 
phonographs, and possibly amuse- 
ment games may prove profitable. 

The Ministry of International 
Trade and Industry reportedly has 
i set a limit on the number of com- 
plete phonographs being imported 
now. Cash Box figures for the year 
ending December 1961 indicate that 


569 phonographs were shipped from 
the U.S. to Japan. The Ministry re- 
portedly has placed a 1000 limit on 
the number of complete machines be- 
ing imported, effective March 1962. 
Games on the other hand amounted to 
a total of 1379 units during this same 
twelve month period. Vending ma- 
chines totaled 255. 

Cheap labor continues to be a ma- 
jor obstacle in the progress of vend- 
ing machines here. Most vendors sell 
only gum and peanuts. 

While there is a limit on complete 
machines being received in the coun- 
try, there is no limit on parts for 
these same machines. 


Cleveland Coin Now Shipping Spain 


CLEVELAND — Morris Gisser, pres- 
ident of Cleveland Coin Machine Ex- 
change, Inc., this city, notified Cash 
r Box last week that sales plans for 
coin machine exports to Spain have 
already begun. The country recently 
’ liberalized its restrictions. 

( During 1961 Spain received 39 
amusement machines from this coun- 
A try and a smaller number of phono- 
graphs and vendors. It is expected 
that this volume will increase during 
V 1962. 

One of Spain’s leading importers 
was represented here last month 
A when Senor Tomas, representing an 
important Spanish firm, called on 
Gisser in his Cleveland office to ar- 
range for future shipments. 

Tomas is pictured here with Moms

fices.

Texas Coin Ops Hold Regular Meet 

CMOA Of Houston Has 53 Member Firms 


HOUSTON — The regular semi-month- 
ly meeting of the Coin Machine Opera- 
tors Association, Inc., Houston, was 
held on the evening of March 20th at 
■‘-Knights of Columbus hall on Dennis 
St. Over 50 operators were present. 
Regular president, Jack Stazo, pre- 
sided while Doris Christian, CMOA 
office secretary recorded the proceed- 
ings. 

Stazo clarified the modified bumping 
clause and explained in detail a re- 
cently adopted rule whereby a mem- 
< ber might be penalized for missing as 
' many as three consecutive meetings 
j without a reasonable excuse. Gift of a 
* phonograph to the Houston Light- 
house for the blind was announced. A 
( resolution that condemned practice of 
referring to coin operated phonographs 
as “Juke Boxes” was adopted. Cash 


Box was officially complimented for 
rarely, if ever, printing term “juke 
boxes” instead of coin operated phono- 
graphs and association vice president 
was instructed to write editors of 
other trade papers requesting that 
they taboo term juke box when refer- 
ring to phonographs. 

The organization presently has en- 
rolled 53 operating and distributing- 
firms, well over 50%, in this city. 
Meetings are held every other Tuesday 
evening at eight o’clock. H. H. Phil- 
lips, not engaged in any phase of 
coinmatics, has been retained as full 
time executive business manager and 
Doris Christian as office secretary, is 
on duty at association headquarters, 
401 Louisiana, room 609, daily from 
9 AM until 5:30 PM. 



Houston Happenings 


Bob West, head of Texas Record Distributors, reported sales of record, “Co- 
linda” by Rod Bernard was well past the 10,000 mark for Houston and now 
breaking in San Antonio and Dallas. V J recently purchased master for Na- 
> tional Distribution. . . . Attractive Bernadine Newman, bookkeeper, newest em- 
ployee at Bill Williams Dist. Co. . . . Gus Sundman, owner Sun Refinishing Co., 
Fort Worth, here on a brief business trip. Gus announced the Rider Distributing 
( Co. on Louisiana St. was now Houston trade are distributor for his firm’s 
phonograph cabinet restyling and refinishing kit. Billy Rider, owner Rider Dis., 
said his company would do the refinishing or sell kit outright to operators. 

Extended visit with T. R. Noto, owner Noto Music Co., Navasota. T. R. said 
business in his territory was slightly below par during recent bitterly cold 
wave but was perking up nicely as Spring advanced. . . . Much has been written 
, by crusaders in the past about protecting minors from coin machine operators. 
7 Every now and then, however, it is the operator who needs the protection. Like 
a newspaper story on March 19th that told about six Pasadena boys, ages 15 
and 16, being charged by a United States Commissioner with multilating coins. 
The lads admitted they had filed down pennies to the size of dimes and used 
them mainly in candy vending machines. One boy, caught in the act at a 
service station, implicated the other five. Detective on the case said 100 of the 
altered pennies were recovered from the boys. 

Vending machines in Pasadena General Hospital produced 45 more of the 
pennies.

Leo Crawford, Sales Rep, Also A Good Service-Man! 


PHILADELPHIA — When Cash Box published a story last week outlining the 
accomplishments of the David Rosen distributor organization, the story told in 
detail the manner in which the coin firm came to the aid of South Jersey opera- 
tors who were hit hard by storm damage during the recent floods. However, 
Leo Crawford, recognized as the “best darned salesman in the business” by 
a guy who counts, his boss Dave Rosen, was mistakenly identified as a service- 
man. Actually, Mike Weinstein was the serviceman on the job, completing in- 
stallations and repairs under Leo’s supervision. Crawford must be a good 
serviceman, though. Any salesman who follows through so thoroughly must 
perform outstanding operator service. Just ask Eva Hornberger, one of the 
operators who benefited from Leo’s service to Jersey shore ops.

Eastern Flashes 


Seeburg continues to follow its program of “it’s the music that counts 
and last week Bill Prutting, Seeburg regional rep in these parts was explain- 
ing to local ops the value of the Seeburg 33 record programs. A story of Bill s 
accomplishments in this issue make interesting reading. Actually, in Bill s 
words, he doesn’t expect the op to knock out all 45’s in place of the 33 rpm x 
disk. “Just enough to make room for some solid programming which reflects 
what these same people are buying in the retail record shops.” Bill sits with ■ 

the collectors and servicemen and explains to them the benefits of the See- 
burg machine. “Once the big boss puts the machine onto location, the dis- ^ 
tributor and the factory loses touch with the programming idea. It’s up to 
the man who does the programming to realize what kind of equipment his 
boss operates — and why.” Bill is heading for Maine this week to spread the 
gospel. 

Harry Berger, president of Vendo-Craft, the compact vending line, an- ^ 
nounced more distrib appointments last week when he named Sam Taran in 
Miami, Fortress Industries in Quebec, Max Winter in Honolulu, Lynch Associ- 
ates in NYC, and Suzo in Rotterdam. “We’re getting into the export phase 
of the business as well,” said Berger. Harry is looking to expand his bowling ^ 
supply phase of the business as well. Precision Metalcraft, parent firm, is 
currently increasing April-May production plans to meet requirements. 

Bert Betti, H. Betti & Sons, North Bergen ops, advises that a tavern tour- 
ney is taking shape over in Jersey and with great results. The tournament ^ 
centers around the pool table game. The Tavern Showcase, a trade magazine, 
wrote the tourney up last week and now it’s gaining ground faster than ever. 

The tourneys were credited with being the reason for drawing crowds t-o the 
locations, creating better tavern relationships, and induced renewed interest 
in the game of pool. In addition, the formation of tavern leagues has started J 
and this thing could blossom into something really big. Betti and his associ- 
ates in Jersey are doing a big job on the game that they have been promoting 
for a long time — 6-pocket pool. 

A story last week outlined how the David Rosen organization helped out -* 
several South Jersey operators after the coinmen had their routes lashed by 
torrential rainstorms during the floods here last month. In error, Leo Craw- 
ford, crack salesman with Rosen was referred to as a serviceman. Not that 
there’s anything wrong with being a serviceman, it’s just that when you’re 
“the best damned salesman in the business” as his boss Dave Rosen puts it, 
you like to be recognized as one. Well, now it’s done Leo. So start selling, 
already! 

Our old New Yorker Jack Gordon, now with Seeburg in the Chicago office, 
returned from a European jaunt with Del Coleman, prexy, last week, and 
while on the Continent, stopped to visit with Seeburg reps at the Salon de 
L’Automatique, a coin machine show, which was held in Antwerp this year. 

Our man, Neville Marten, Cash Box European Director, was on the job, natch, 
and glad-handed the boys from the States. A 

Guess who goofed in naming Myron Sugerman’s son in an announcement 
notice last week? We did, of course, who else! The lad’s name is Roger John, 
not Roger Martin, so there. Now, now, Elaine, stop brow-beating Myron. He 
told us the correct name. We just spelled it wrong, that’s all. In any event, 
the youngster was a little too young to board the New Amsterdam last week 
to see his grandpappy, Barney Sugerman, off on a 40-day cruise. The boat 
tilted to one side, the one Shugy was on of course, there were so many well- 
wishers on hand. But after the last line was let go, Shugy and Molly relaxed 
with several friends who are making the trip with them, for more than one 
month of pleasure aboard the ship, scheduled to stop at a dozen or more 
ports, one of which is Israel during the Passover season. >- 

Meanwhile, back at the business at hand in Runyon’s, Myron Sugerman 
tells us that effective April 1st a new company, Runyon International, Inc. 
will be formed. Myron’s the president, and the firm will handle all of the 
export business that heretofore was conducted within the confines of the x 
Runyon organization proper. 

Morris Rood holding down the phone, Lou Wolberg out with the flu again, 
and Kempy running back and forth between the new East Hartford office 
and NYC. But all in all, business is reportedly very good. - 

Murray Kaye back on the golf course, now that the weather is nice and 
Meyer Parkoff with that golf gleam in his eye, as well. Meyer told us that 
two new 33’s are available for programming this week — Dick Ruedebush 
(“Meet Mr. Trumpet”) and Dave Brubeck (“Time Further Out”). Makes 
numbers 187 and 188 as released for 33 rpm programming via the Seeburg 
distributor network. 

Mike Munves had to take time out last week to sit for a moment and take 
toll of the orders for arcade openings. The big date is April 14th, and EVERY- „ 
BODY wants the machines yesterday! Dick Greenberg hustling as fast as 
he can, getting shippers to pick up and deliver what is ready, before rush- 
ing to the back to push the assembly line that has much more work than 
can possibly be finished by opening date. “We always make the deadlines 
each year,” says Mike. And we believe him! f 

Mrs. Annie Koenig stops off in Paramus, Rt. 4 shipping center while Jack 
Rowan continues in to order a shuffle-bowler. . . . Trade saddened by the 
news of Ray Knoss’ illness. Ray is reportedly in Madison Hospital, suffering 
from hepatitis. The hospital is on 76th Street and Madison Ave. Ted Seidel 
told us he called and was advised that Ray’s condition wouldn’t be reported 
on until tests have been completed. . . . Henry Slavis, Lipsky Distributing, 
still recooping from surgery, but Steve Tarzana has come to the rescue. His 
partner, Sam “Musical Moments” Morrison, of the uptown Morrisons, is 
dragging trying to hold down the operation while Steve helps Henry and 
Abe out. Harry Koeppel says that the exercise is doing Steve a lot of good — 
“Sam ought to try it.” 

Irving Holzman, United East Coast, off to Chicago, while Lou Druckman r 
manages the sales and service. Harry Siskind, a regular customer stops by 
and Lou manages the deal in time to catch Irv on the phone with news from 
the United plant in Chi. 

A1 Simon and A1 D’lnzillo busy as all get-out what with the arcade season 
and the Auto-Photo business building at the same time. Meanwhile, the Rock- 
Ola machines and the ChiCoin “Gold Crown” deliveries keep the staff busy. 

Abe Green, Runyon president, lost his mother last Sunday. The funeral was 
Monday, March 26. . . . Joe Ash, Active Amusement, Philly, is getting his 
feet wet in the vending business. Has the Rock-Ola IVI coffee machine series 
on display and Marty Brownstein claims they’re attracting many ops who 
never gave the coffee machine idea a look before. A fresh brew, batch brew, 
and instant coffee machine each features a hot soup and hot chocolate capac- 
ity. Joe expects to pioneer the business as far as Active is concerned. They’ve 
never specialized in vending before.

Cash Box — April 7, 1962 



Chicago Chatter 


Now that the heavy ice is rapidly diminishing and ocean shipping is being 
stepped up considerably the so-called gates will swing wide for international 
t commerce on or after April 25, when the Port of Chicago will be ready and 
available to ingoing and outgoing ships. . . . James E. Whitaker, president of 
C. S. Greene & Co. (freight forwarders), has recently been named chairman 
of the Port of Chicago Information Committee (for the Chicago Assn, of Com- 
1 merce & Industry). Gerald E. Franzen is the director of Transportation for the 
assn. On April 12 Whitaker, Franzen and several other officials of the Port of 
Chicago Authority will embark, visiting the major ports of Europe to promote 
the Port of Chicago facility. Whitaker had many kind words for Joe Robbins, 
general sales manager of Empire Coin Machine Exchange, who — he said — is 
a great supporter of the Port of Chicago. “He deserves our accolades for assist- 
ing us in the development of the Port facility over the past few years,” 
( Whitaker said. 


There’s very little doubt that business is booming at Bally Mfg. In fact, 
A we’re back to the days when everyone at Bally was so busy that we barely had 
a chance to chat with any of the execs. While Herb Jones and Don Moloney 
were on long distance telephone we managed to split a few words with Bally 
general sales manager Bill O’Donnell — then he returned to his battery of 
■ phones. 

Words are insufficient to express the heavy action at Chicago Dynamic In- 
dustries, according to hard-hitting sales chief Mort Secore. Sam Gensburg, 
Mort, Jerry Koci and Harry Glick are watching the store while prexy Sam 
Wolberg is vacationing. . . . Ralph Wyckoff tells us everyone is back off the 
road at Rock-Ola Mfg. Meanwhile Art Daddis, Rock-Ola’s eastern rep is visit- 
ing in Florida with Sam Taran and Howie Robinson. Joe Ash, of Active 
Amusements in Philly, popped into town to visit with Ed Doris, Rock-Ola’s 
executive vice prexy. Ralph infos that two big promotions are in the works. 


Nate Feinstein, Atlas Music Co., is thrilled over the heavy action received of 
late with AMI phonos and Rowe vending equipment. Nate played a whale of a 
golf game during his recent vacation in Sebring, Florida (he cracked 89!). 
During Nate’s absence Eddie Ginsburg, Harold Schwartz and Irv Ovitz kept 
up the heavy pace with visiting ops at Atlas ... At United Mfg., Herb Oet- 
tinger, Bill DeSelm, Roy Kraehmer, Glenn Johnson, Ray Riehl and Art (nice 
guy!) Rapacz played host last week to Sam Wiseman of State Sales in Balti- 
more, and Irving Holzman, of United Seacoast in N’Yawk. Irv’s selling United 
“Bonus Baseball” amusement games like they’re going out of style. 


Most optimistic report of the week emanated from the inner sanctum of 
Art Weinand, vice prexy of Williams Electronic Mfg., who joined president 
Sam Stern in advising that Williams “Extra Innings” and “1962 World Series” 
baseball games, as well as “Three Coins” single player pingames production 
is already at peak. Big things are happening at Williams these lovely Spring 
a. days. 

Seeburg chairman Delbert Coleman and Jack Gordon, vice prexy of See- 
burg’s phonograph division, just returned from their big European trip. 
They’re delighted that Seeburg’s European subsids, Seeben in Hamburg, Ger- 
many and Seebend in Antwerp, Belgium are enjoying such success on the 
Continent. 

Automatic Canteen is now marketing nationally a new, combination menthol- 
wintergreen flavored chewing gum said to be the first new flavor combination 
in over 100 years. It’s called “Wintadent” — “A Cool Chew” — and is marketed 
by Scoop Products, Inc., an Automatic Canteen subsidiary, according to Maurice 
Glockner, Canteen’s vice prexy of the Merchandising & Products Division. 


While Woxdd Wide president Joel Stern is still vacationing Art Woods came 
in off the road to aid Fred Skor and Howie Freer with the sales push at the 
busy Seeburg distrib. We don’t see Art these days, he’s that busy on the road 
for World Wide. 


The day is not far off when Dave and Dorothy Gottlieb return from their 
„ annual Miami Beach sabbatical. Meanwhile Dave is getting regular reports 
from Nate and Alvin Gottlieb and Judd Weinberg advising of the fantastic 
sales acceptance of Gottlieb’s new “Flipper Clown” pinball amusement game. 
... A ditto terrific report on “Flipper Clown” is conveyed by Joe Schwartz, 
( prexy of National Coin Machine Exchange, and his sales chief Mort Levinson. 
Mort just returned to the city from a pleasant sojourn in Dallas, Texas. Mort 
is decrying the fact that he is experiencing a shortage of good, used games for 
export biz. 


Heavy increases in export business are being enjoyed at First Coin Machine 
Exchange where Joe Kline, Sam Kolber and Fred Kline are clinging to the long 
distance telephone trying to lay their hands on used amusement and music 
equipment for overseas shipment. . . . Paul Huebsch, vice president of J. H. 
Keeney & Co., relates that there has not been the slightest let-up in production 
and shipping of “El Rancho” and “Hacienda” amusement games. Clayton 
Nemeroff took off last week for a lengthy road trip calling on Keeney’s distribs.

Hymie Zorinsky returned to his busy H. Z. Vending & Sales Co. offices and 
showrooms in Omaha, Nebraska after a pleasant west coast vacation. He and 
Eddie Zorinsky are delighted to have Joe Blend back in the company fold after 
an absence of a year or so. Joe was with Phil Moss in his Des Moines, Iowa 
distribbery prior to his return to H. Z. Vending. ... A very happy Ralph 
Sheffield, general sales manager of Midway Mfg. infos that the Franklin 
Park amusement manufacturer is now running two shifts to double up on 
production of Midway’s “Deluxe Baseball” game. Sales are fantastic, accord- 
ing to Ralph and Hank Ross and Marcine “Iggy” Wolverton. 


Chet Gore, prexy of Exhibit Supply Co., announces that card sales are orbit- 
ting since he added his new “Astronaut” series (including Mercury and Friend- 
ship capsules). NASA heroes John H. Glenn, Alan Shepard and Virgil “Gus” 
Grissom are highlighted in this series. Other hot card series Chet now offers 
are “Recording Artists,” “Hot Rods” and the new “Baseball Stars” groupings. 


Gagster Kil Kitt (always one for a good pun) sent Joe Orleck a gag check 
for $2,954,000.40 on a lark. Yup, Gil, if the check clears we’ll send you ten per- 
cent! . . . Joe McCormick, the ever-smilin’ Irishman From County St. Louis, Mo. 
(that should be McMo.) dropped us a line to say “Hi!” 

Another busy bee among coin machine distribs in this neck of the woods is 
Herb Perkins, Purvey Dist., who informs that this lovely Spring weather is 
certainly appreciated (now it’ll probably rain “cats and dogs!”) . . . Here’s 
an interesting item submitted by Bert Bacharach, of Chicago’s American: 
“Because women’s hosiery is so easily pilfered, many stores are considering 
dispensing them in automatic vending machines.” . . . (Here’s a thought for 
the week submitted by Alex Dreier of WBKB Television) : “Some people’s 
minds are like concrete — all mixed up and permanently set.”

Weikel Sees Billiard-Pool Influence 
On Bowling Alleys Cause For Success 

Gives 'Shot-In- Arm' To Nation's Bowling Lanes 


CHICAGO— R. W. (Bill) Weikel, di- 
rector of sales for Fischer Sales & 
x Manufacturing Company, commented 
last week on the fantastic growth, 
over the past few years, of the bil- 
liard game influence in the nation’s 
bowling establishments, during an 
interview in his offices in McHenry, 
Illinois last week. 

^ He explained that at the begin- 
ning pool tables were actually added 
in bowling emporiums to keep bowl- 
ers occupied while they waited for 
f the availability of bowling alleys. 

He said: “It was only a short time 
ago that some bowling alley proprie- 
tors decided to install a few pool ta- 
bles to help hold customers on their 
premises until a lane was available. 
Now the ‘tables are turned.’ 
v “These same proprietors, and many 
more, have expanded their billiard 
facilities to the limit only to find that 
very often their customers are bowl- 
ing while waiting for a pool table. 
f “It is a point of great satisfaction 

to many sportsmen,” he added, “that 
-( the great grand-daddy of all skill 
games — Pocket Billiards — is making 
such a spirited comeback. “Many new 
bowling alleys sport a special room 
where pool, billiard, and snooker ta- 
f bles busily boost profits for their 
owners. While the yet newer bowling 
j establishments, still on the architects 
drawing boards, plan even more elab- 
orate ‘Billiard Palaces.’ 

Weikel continued by saying: “Own- 
ers and operators of somewhat older 
bowling establishments refuse to be 



BILL WEIKEL 


left out of this very profitable boom. 
A bit of re-arrangement and redeco- 
rating, plus five, ten, or more of the 
latest — top quality 4x8 coin-op- 
erated pool tables— and, presto, you 
have many more passengers on the 
billiard ‘bandwagon.’ 

“The idea of coin-operated units is 
tremendously appealing to owners of 
many of the newest lanes as well. 
More units per square foot, lower in- 
itial cost, and less supervisory over- 
head results in even higher profits. 

“In short,” Weikel concluded, “it 
can be said that the sky-rocketing 
popularity of pocket billiards is a 
most welcome ‘shot-in-the-arm’ to the 
sagging profit problem experienced 
by many bowling proprietors.”

Welland Canal 
Opens Apr. 1 

Earliest Date Yet 

PORT COLBURNE, ONT.— The Ca- 
nadian St. Lawrence Seaway Author- 
ity announced last week that the 
Welland Ship Canal, which links Lake 
Ontario with Lake Erie, will be filled 
with water and ready for shipping, 
Sunday, April 1. 

This is the earliest opening the 
seaway has ever had. Warm weather 
is undoubtedly the reason for the 
premature start on commercial ship- 
ping this year. 

Domestic shipping however will 
benefit but not shipping from the sea. 
Officials believe overseas ships will 
be in the waterway by April 15. 

News regarding opening of the 
Port of Chicago and St. Lawrence 
Seaway shipping can be found in 
other sections of this issue.

SIMPLIFIED SELECTOR. 


331/3-45 RPM MECH-O-MATIC 


FEATHER-TOUCH TONE ARM 


COMPACT MECHANISM. Now for 


ROCK* OLA again gives gou profit 

features and service simplicitg in 


the all new Princess Phonograph 


NEW 

Another new Rock-Ola exclusive: is the 
simplified coil-less selector. Selections 
are achieved through springloaded, self 
cleaning selection levers activated by 
two motor driven revolving carriages. 
The elimination of electro-magnetic 
coils reduces service calls and assures 
increased dependability for greater 
operating profits. 


PLUG-IN CARTRIDGE SNAP-IN 
STYLUS. Longer record wear and 
better performance are now possible. 

The Princess incorporates a new, 
stylish, feather-weight tone arm con- 
taining a specially designed Astatic high 
compliance stereo cartridge with a snap- 
in DIAMOND stylus. The famous Rock- 
Ola serviceability is again shown in the 
cartridge which merely plugs-in with 
no wires or connections to loosen or 
solder. These features are just another 
proof of Rock-Ola's economy of opera- 
tion developed through years of on 
"Location Testing.” 


INTERMIX PLAY. Dual-speed Rock- 
Ola Built turntable permits complete 
intermix of 331/3 and 45 RPM records in 
any sequence in any bank of records. 
No matter the speed or whether it's 
stereo or monaural records, they can 
all be played on the PRINCESS, the 
one truly flexible phonograph. Only the 
PRINCESS gives complete protection 
for all future location needs. (Optional 
Equipment) 


the first time in the history of Coin- 
Operated phonographs, Rock-Ola has 
produced an entirely new Compact 
Revolving Record Magazine designed 
specifically for use in a small phono- 
graph. The NEW Rock-Ola compact 
mechanism has fewer moving parts for 
faster cycling and maximum ease of 
servicing, while preserving the tradi- 
tional Rock-Ola Revolving mechanism 
design and operating dependability. 


COMPACT NEW DESIGN for greater 
flexibility saves on space ... and cn service. 
The Princess has all these features::. Easily 
serviced title strip holders; New miniaturized 
revolving mechanism; Stainless steel record- 
magazine belt; Dual channel stereo amplifier; 
12" heavy duty speaker, and a wide dis- 
persion, high compression driver horn; Push 
button selection assembly; Stylized tone arm 
with “plug-m” cartridge and diamond stylus; 
Combination “tune dictator" and popularity
